What we're about

Welcome to our Social Tribe… For Retired people living on the North Shore of Auckland. We do day trips from the North Shore all around Auckland and Beyond, check out our events to see what we've got coming up.

Would you like to get out and about more! And enjoy having loads of fun along the way, with like-minded people?

Well, this could be the group for you!

I'm Amanda Rothery facilitator of Silver Rose tours and I like to help people to get out and enjoy life in the company of others, by facilitating a variety of fun experiences. I am using MeetUp for my business as a platform to reach retired men and women who want to improve their social interaction, explore this beautiful city that we live in and make new friends or get reacquainted with old friends

We specialize in day trips from the North Shore to all over Auckland. All tours have a pick up and drop off service, either from a pick up point or from your home address. For people who want smaller, simpler trips we have half-day tours available too.

Keeping active is important however so is the strong social interaction between people and that's what makes Silver Rose Tours Interesting and fun. Our personalised tours are small groups of 4-10 people, we find this size is just right to encourage social interaction but not so big as to be overwhelming.

All events require a 50% deposit to avoid "no shows". I try to keep the adventure prices as reasonable as possible and get discounts for you wherever I can.

If you’re still not sure whether this is the group for you then see if any of these apply to you:

• You love exploring, ever better if someone else is driving.

• You want to get out and about more but your friends are either married, busy or not interested in some of the things you are interested in.

• You have a wonderful family but they are all super busy with their own busy lives.

• You want to enjoy having more companionship in your life and try new things while having people to talk to and share these new experiences with.

• You’re single, divorced or widowed and often feel like a 3rd, 5th or 7th wheel, you don’t mind your own company but "its no fun alone" sometimes doing life with other people around it just better.

• You want to “Do Lunches in the Country” or enjoy an elegant High Tea in, fancy out of the way places.

• You’ve never been to places like Wenderholm, Huia, Mahurangi, Tawharanui, Kawau Island, Helensville or Clevedon you’d like to explore more of our beautiful city.

• You like social walks on the beach or in Park or Gardens.

• You’re independent, active and love a good laugh.

• You like Gardens, Beaches, Boats, Awesome views and the outdoors, history, art, and Animals.

• You’re a little bit spontaneous and like the flexibility traveling in small groups allows.

• You’re worried your mobility is an issue, as long as you can walk to the van and climb in. Then hope aboard, your walking stick or frame can come too. We have plenty of room in our spacious baggage area.

• You still drive, you want to go to other places but only feel comfortable driving to your local shops and areas you know well.

If you said yes to any of these then our Social Tribe is perfect for you :)

So Join up. come and hang out with some fellow fun, active, retired ladies and gentleman, have some coffee, of may a wine (after all you're not driving) and talk about the latest local news. We can also talk about books, grandchildren, the weather ;), upcoming tours and adventures, or whatever else happens to come up.
