What is a Virtual Tour?

A Virtual Tour is composed of several 360 panoramas. Users can navigate between images using hotspots located within the image and/or thumbnails located in the bar at the bottom, like on the screenshot above. Images in virtual tours can also have interactive elements like links to text or video elements.

This is how a virtual tour created with the Kuula editor can look like. To see it live, click below.

Sample Virtual Tour

Virtual tours are prefect to include on a website, in a presentation, a real-estate listing or any on-line article presenting 360 content. Creating a virtual tour is easy and you can do it in a few minutes or less. Here's how to get started!

Creating a Virtual Tour

Creating a tour is a two-step process: first, create a collection and add some posts to it, then add hotspots and interactive elements to each posts.

Creating and managing collections is covered in depth in the Collections tutorial and it's a great place to start.

Adding hotspots and linking posts

Once your collection is ready, you can move to the next step. A virtual tour would not be complete without adding some interactive elements to the panoramas. In the Kuula editor, you can add images, text or hotspots. Hotspots can either link to other panoramas in the tour, open cards with additional information containing videos, text or links or simply open a link to any web page.

To learn how to add text and labels check this tutorial and to learn how to add hotspots - check that one. Spoiler alert: it's very simple and fun!

Sharing & embedding virtual tours

When created the collection and added all the interactive elements to the posts, it's time to share it!

Since Virtual Tours are essentially collections, you can find them on your Profile page, under Collections tab. Find the collection that represents your tour and click on it.

Kuula Virtual Tours - Embed Virtual Tour

The collection page offers a few options. First of all you can view the Virtual Tour by cliking the first button under the collection name.

The next button allows you to embed the Virtual Tour on a website or listing. Click on it and you will be taken to the Embed Editor where you can customize the settings and generate the code to embed the Virtual Tour.

Finally, you can share the tour directly on Twitter or Facebook using the two last buttons.
