What’s involved in having a virtual tour.

First off, make sure you have already setup your Google my business listing, pay particular attention to ensure your location marker is in the correct spot.

Now you are ready to book us to come and photograph your 360 tour. Use the contact us page, we’ll arrange a date and time convenient to you to come and photograph your tour, ideally the tour should be undertaken when you are closed (if this is not possible the quietest time of day).

Before we arrive to photograph your tour, you need to ensure you walk around the areas we will be photographing with a critical eye, first impressions count (there really is no hiding place with a 360° tour).

Our photographer will visit the site and work through the rooms to be photographed in a logical order, you and your staff should avoid the areas being photographed, we will advise you when complete. If you have selected to have the external street view updated this will be completed at the same time.

We will prepare the images and link them together ready for upload to the Google platform (note we will link images but once uploaded, Google has control of the connections between viewpoints which we can’t change). Once your tour has been uploaded it will normally take less than 48 hours to be visible on your Google my business listing (but again this is in the hands of Google so may take longer).

After the tour images are live, we will arrange if you like to transfer the rights of the images to you (you will need to accept the transfer from an email received from Google).

  • You can embed the tour in your website just ask your web developer to do this for you.
  • Your tour can be updated if you redecorate or make changes to the layout.
  • Your staff and customers faces will be blurred (if the tour can’t be undertaken when you are closed).
