Google Virtual Tours (also known as Google business View or Google Street View) are official Google contents that utilises the ‘Street View’ technology of Google Maps which allows prospective customers to visualise the space of a business. Its interactive contents help customer experience and engage each location on a deeper level.

The Benefits of having a Google Virtual Tour

These are a few benefits why local businesses should have a virtual tour for their stores:


Choosing the right restaurant, café or retail outlet is hard. By having a high-quality, professional virtual tour, you help build trust with strangers and customers, even before they set foot to your store. These immersive, virtual experiences help customers experience your location, which inspires greater confidence on a deeper level.


When optimised, your Google local page not only shows up over your competition, but it also allows visitors to take a tour straight from Google searches. The virtual tour is not limited to the desktop, but also viewable via the tablets and mobile, increasing its exposure to prospective guest and patrons.


With the interactive virtual tour, we are able to help you incorporate pop-ups as customers navigate the surroundings. As they move room to rooms, you are able to share the description of your business, and how certain areas serve a unique function for your patrons. This helps enhance interaction and build valued trust with your prospective customers.

Google virtual tours allow you to showcase your business 24/7.

Difference between the 3D virtual Tour and Google Virtual Tour

The 3D virtual tour is a technique incorporating high-level technology and 3D model rendering which helps showcases ideas and developments before the space is even built. This is ideal for developers or industries needing to showcase their product supplies, residential or commercial spaces. With an appealing online tour, businesses can convey their initial concepts to prospective customers confidently and help them envision the space better.

The Google virtual tour, on the other hand, leverages Google Street View technology to take an existing physical space.
