Some of the most common asked questions about our Virtual Tours and Services

A virtual tour is an online tool used to showcase facilities and venues. Virtual tours come in many shapes and sizes. They help in recreating a realistic representation of reality. Several types of virtual tours exist, including:

  • 360° tours
  • Still photo tours
  • Video tours

Our 360° virtual tours offer a high engagement and interactive experience. We use state of the art technology to enable our clients to showcase their space in a user friendly way. Past criticisms of virtual tours is that the technology can be non-user friendly and rather ‘clunky’. Our software is easy to navigate on desktop, tablet and mobile.

KEEP VISITORS LONGER
Having a virtual tour on your site will mean people spend more time on your site. Your 3D virtual tour allows you to showcase your space in an engaging unforgettable way that will keep your audience exploring for longer than traditional photos and videos.


SAVE TIME
3D virtual tours help you share your space in a time effective manner. Your space will be open online for 365 days a year. Having a 3D virtual tour enables you to qualify enquiries and help engage your customers from the outset.


SET REALISTIC EXPECTATIONS
How often has a venue or property not lived up to your expectations? Or attending a business has filled you with anxiety not knowing what to expect?

A 3D virtual tour helps showcase your facility as it really is. If you have nothing to hide, then why not let your customers visit you online from the outset.

If you have a building or venue we can work with you to increase engagement and interactivity with your audience.

We have great experience working with clients across many different industries:

  • Education
  • Property
  • Health care
  • Leisure and Hospitality
  • Venue Hire
  • Construction & Design

A 360° virtual tour is bespoke to each of our clients. One of the defining factors is the size of the space to be captured. We pride ourselves on providing value for money and the best product to our clients.

Our virtual tours start from £300 and increase dependent on the size and complexity of the project.

We can provide a budget estimate by simply knowing the size/layout of your facility. Please get in contact with us to discuss more about your requirements.

Information points transform your 3D virtual tour from good to great!

Include additional information directly in your tour and point customers in the right direction.
Whether it’s daily rates, booking pages, menus, galleries, donation pages, user manuals, social media platforms etc., our interactive information points transform your 3D virtual tour into an immersive platform of opportunity.

We use Matterport technology which is regarded as the leading virtual tour technology within the industry.

Your 3D virtual tour will be hosted by View3D. Hosting your Virtual Tour is essential to maintain loading speed, secure storage and useability.

After creating and editing your virtual tour with information points, we provide you with a direct link to the virtual tour and an embed code. The direct link can be viewed from any device connected to the internet. The embed code can be used to add the virtual tour directly onto your website.

No. Our virtual tours are hosted online, meaning as long as you have an internet connection they are fast and secure with no slowing of your existing website.

Yes, our virtual tours are compatible with select virtual reality headsets. For the best VR experience, we recommend the Oculus Quest.

Other headsets are also supported, but may be a less comfortable experience:

  • Oculus Go
  • iPhone with Google Cardboard
  • Android Phones with Google Cardboard

Our virtual tours can be uploaded to google street view. When accessed on google street, the tours are more basic and less user friendly than your 3D virtual tour. However, uploading your tour to google street is great for search engine optimisation benefits.

 

View3D are google street trusted providers.
