Virtual Tour Examples & Comparisons

A big advantage of working with Tour de Force 360VR is our ability to produce Google Virtual Tours and more engaging custom tours. Both have unbeatable advantages. Below are a couple comparisons along with other Google tours.

Tip: Many people find it easier to navigate Google tours using keyboard arrows. Left and right arrow to turn. Up and down arrows to move forward and back. You still need a mouse to look up and down.

In Google tours you click and drag the image. When you stop dragging movement stops. With the custom tour you click and move the mouse in the direction you want to look (as in computer games). The farther you move the faster you turn and you keep turning until you release the mouse. The mobile version of both tours use the Google style.

Woman's Club of Wisconsin

Woman's Club Website Tour
Custom Virtual Tour

The Woman's Club of Wisconsin wanted both Google and custom virtual tours. They show off the club both to prospective members and those looking for a remarkable event venue, especially for weddings. The custom tour includes both voice and text tour guide, background music, an interactive floor plan as well as thumbnail navigation.

While exploring the Google tour be sure to follow the stairs up to the Grand Ballroom. One advantage of a custom tour is that it can be easier to make sure viewers don't miss anything important, for instance with a thumbnail for each location.

The Rotunda Banquet Facility

Rotunda Website Tour
Custom Virtual Tour

The Rotunda wanted both Google and custom virtual tours. The minimal Google tour gave them most of it's advantages, showing off the premier feature of the banquette hall, the rotunda itself, plus all the search engine and map advantages at a minimal cost. Having caught their attention, visitors click through to their website where a more advanced custom tour is offered.

Before these virtual tours The Rotunda came up number 4 or 5 in local search results. After just adding the Google and custom tours they now rank number 1.

Next Act Theatre took full advantage of both Google and custom tours. The Google tour provides a complete walk-through of the new theater. The custom tour fills it with people who don't need faces blurred, unlike with a Google tour. Sound, switching between plays, drop down text with more information and more features create a rich, engaging and highly interactive experience. But.... only the Google tour can appear right in search results, maps and more at a price that can't be beat.
