FAQ

A Google Virtual Tour is an interactive 360 experience or simulation of your business attached to your Google My Business listing.

Custom Virtual Tours are put on your website and can have any form of external information integrated into your tour.

To publish a Google Virtual Tour, first the images are captured, then edited and/or stitched together to produce high-res Panoramic Points. Then, these photographs are connected together using a virtual tour software that then uploads the completed tour to the correct Google My Business listing.

It is simply the photographs captured.

Choosing a proper date, time and coordinating with the business can take minutes, a photo shoot will only take a few hours, and then editing and publishing is typically a two-week turn around for quality control and publishing to the listing.

If you would like to have the Virtual Tour on your website as well, you will need to give the Embed links to your Web Masters to Embed the tour wherever you want it on your website. You can either have the tour in Gallery, or you could have a new button saying “Virtual Tour” as a menu item. This is up to you.

People find your Virtual Tour on all Google platforms which means anyone looking on Google Street View will only see your virtual tour and no other images.

Google Street View is a technology in Google Maps and Google Earth that provides 360° interactive Panoramic Points from positions along many streets in the world. It was launched in 2007 in several cities in the United States, and has since expanded to include cities and rural areas worldwide as well as interiors of businesses.

Just about every single industry uses Virtual Tours. From Real Estate to Hospitality to Retail to Schools and even professional services such as dentists, chiropractors and physical therapists can benefit from having a Virtual Tour.

Your audience expects to see them, particularly on mobile devices.

Static photographs – no matter how good they are , do not convey the feeling of actually being there. Looking around, interacting and engaging with your potential customers is so important these days. You do not get this from either photographs or video.

You have invested time and money in your business, you are passionate about it. Virtual Tours are the best way to promote your business, your establishments, your facilities, your property and activities – without a doubt.

This is based on the number of Panoramic Points you wish to include in your Virtual Tour. As you would expect, the more Panoramic Points you require in the tour the higher the price will be. Let us know your budget, ideas, objectives and requirements and we can put together a competitive quote.

It is a one time fee with no additional charges relating to the Virtual Tour. However, a Custom Tour is subject to an annual hosting fees of R499.00

We can shoot a Virtual Tour of any location in the world. Previously our work has taken us globally to Thailand, Australia…

For a high quality Virtual Tour, the weather needs to be just right and if not, our 

photographer would not shoot your venue or location. If the weather conditions are not favourable on the day of the shoot, we will contact the client and reschedule.

We are based in Johannesburg, South Africa and have a network of Google Trusted Photographers throughout the Globe.
