There is a reason Readers Tours attract ‘Adventurous Seniors’.

Our itineraries are bold and colourful, so are our tour guides.
We drive scenic roads and coastal highway and have luxury accommodation waiting after a big day. We offer excursions such as Helicopter rides and guided walks and have everything organised down to the last meal, with free newspapers for a spot of reading or challenging sudoku.

We are passionate about bringing like-minded individuals together to explore this beautiful landscape we call our backyard and are ready to go full steam ahead with our next tour the moment it is safe to do so.

For now, we will continue to bring you stunning photography, travel stories and helpful tips during these unprecedented times.

Our team remains dedicated to helping you, so please pick up the phone or fill out our contact form and we will be in touch. We look forward to you joining us and experiencing New Zealand like never before.

What if you don't have WhatsApp?

Get Your Neighbours Phone Numbers and Emails

Rhonda from Hastings Central

Hi there, hope you are all doing ok. What a strange day we are in.

Hi there, hope you are all doing ok. What a strange day we are in.
If you are not part of an organised Neighbourhood support it is not too late. Go, knock on a door, keep your distance or watch out for when people are walking past, get each other's contact details so you can stay in touch and be friends and help each other out if need be. Especially for those over 70 or who are vulnerable, maybe don't have car, or with Special Needs.
It might be you can become a co operative.
It might that if you are needing to go to the shop, you check if two or three other need something to limit the number of people going - or if someone becomes unwell, someone else can deliver a meal to their door or someone might have loads of pumpkins or apples or lemons and they are willing to share (obviously, that would need to be under the strictest of hygiene) - or someone might be able to make some pumpkin soup or stewed apples but does not have the freezer space, but someone else does, so you can share the combined efforts.
If someone has a glass house, maybe you can offer to raise other people's seeds if they have them - you will have other cool ideas of how to help too.
My main point is, if you haven't go them, please try to get phone numbers and emails. Form WhatsApp groups etc. We must row this waka together and be there - albeit at a distance for each other.
Stay Well Everyone!
Please do any of these things with the most care possible to stay away from each other - if that makes sense!

Salvation Army shops are closed

Denise from Marewa

Due to most of their volunteers being over 70 and more at risk, they have decided not to open their charity shops until further notice.

I imagine the other op shops won't be far behind.

Have a spouting related concern and would like a honest assessment and quote?

No problem, we can do that for you 👍

We are still operating as usual with a few tweaks due to the current health situation;
- please do not be offended when we arrive and greet you with 'Hello' without a handshake
- it is not necessary for you to be present if this is preferable

Have a fabulous weekend Hawkes Bay and beyond 🇳🇿
We will get through this! ✊💯
