In April 2017, Rydges World Square asked us to create an Enhanced Google Street View Virtual Tour to embed on their website.
The Virtual Tour consists of >70 360° panoramas and includes the hotel reception, bar and café, restaurant, three different room types, two separate entrances and the Grand Ballroom. Once the on-site photo shoot had concluded, the Virtual Tour was live on Google within 48 hours.
Since publishing, the Rydges World Square Virtual Tour has accumulated over 260,000 views on Google Maps – and averages around 3000 views per week. The Enhanced Virtual Tour provides an additional 500 tour views per week.
Enhanced Virtual Tours increase the viewer’s engagement by providing information and interactive options which are not available through the standard Google Street View platform.
