A Virtual Tour allows anyone with internet access and a computer, smartphone or tablet to look around a room or view from anywhere in the world at any time of day. They can look left and right, just like they were actually standing within the image!
It’s made by taking several photographs of your establishment and stitching them together to produce a very wide photo which is then inserted in to a “viewer”. This is then ready for your website!
A Virtual Tour is a full-colour 360° view of an interior or exterior of a property. They immerse you in the space giving you almost the same experience as if you were actually standing in the room. No additional software or plug-ins are required to view a tour. The download time is about 15 seconds with an ordinary connection.
By simply clicking on “hotspots” within the virtual tour, users can move from room-to-room, giving the user a more interactive experience.
WHY ADD A VIRTUAL TOUR TO YOUR WEBSITE?
Simply put, it not only helps the consumer avoid information overload while sorting through the thousands of listings available, but also instills in the potential guest the confidence necessary to take that final step and make a booking.
Research conducted by Google has confirmed that hotels featuring a virtual tour on their website receive up to 48% more direct bookings.
Research has also shown that video content increases your website’s conversion rate. But producing your own videos can be expensive. A 360° Virtual Tour combines the best of both worlds at a fraction of the cost of the old and traditional video – whilst helping your venue to increase conversion rates.
Two-thirds of travelers are more likely to choose a hotel if they can take a virtual tour first. These tours give your property a direct channel into the traveler’s mind, with visual imagery being processed 60,000 times faster in a human brain than plain text descriptions.
Encourage direct bookings with a stunning virtual tour of your venue or property. Draw potential guests or buyers in, allowing them at their pace to visually discover how your property can fulfill their requirements. Highlight your property’s differentials and uniqueness, and lead potential guests straight to your website to process their reservations.

WHAT DOES A VIRTUAL TOUR COST?
The price of a virtual tour can range anywhere from a few hundred Rand to several thousand Rand – depending on the number of scenes (panoramas) to be shot, the complexity of the shoot and the client’s specific requirements. For this reason, we do not provide rough price estimates or quotations until we have met with you and discussed your precise requirements and the various options available. Only then do we provide a formal quotation for your consideration. There is no obligation whatsoever on you in this regard.
We price our projects based on the amount of scenes (rooms / spaces) you need. Our pricing is all inclusive meaning things such as navigation, custom design and mobile compatibility is all included.
