Frequently Asked Questions

What is a virtual tour?

A virtual tour is an online experience that allows you to explore a location remotely.

What makes Globetrotter VR tours different from other virtual tours?

Some platforms out there are giving webinar-style virtual tours using Zoom, PowerPoints and photos. We are not just another Zoom call! We use the latest virtual reality technology to bring the world to you through stunning 360° environments and storytelling.

We are also different from classic virtual experiences that require you to have a virtual reality headset because our tours are accessible from your PC, mobile and tablet. With Globetrotter VR, you can get the best of what cutting-edge tech offers without the extra gear.

What is the difference between an On-Demand tour and a Live tour?

We offer two different types of tours to fit all lifestyles and desires. Our On-demand tour contains pre-recorded audio clips and videos by our local guide, meaning you can enjoy the tour independently, at a time that suits you!

Our Live Tour offers the most immersive experience. After choosing your preferred date and start time, you will join our local guide live in the virtual tour platform and be personally guided around. This model allows you to interact directly with our tour guide and ask any questions you may have.

Do I need a VR headset to enjoy your virtual tour?

Nope! To have the best experience of your tour, you just need yourself, your PC, smartphone or tablet and a stable internet connection. A refreshing drink and some yummy snacks are encouraged, but not required!

I'm not a high-tech person. Can I still do your tours?

You don’t need to have any knowledge or previous experience with VR to enjoy our tours. Our team of experts has made sure that all you need to start exploring virtually is your favourite device (PC, mobile, tablet) and a sense of curiousity!

How can I book a private tour for my friends and family?

We offer private group tours and can arrange these for a time and date that suits you. Our private virtual tours are perfect for birthday celebrations, family activities and team building events! To arrange a private tour, please send a request to info@globetrotter-vr.com

Do you use Zoom or Meets to do your tours?

We use our very own dedicated video calling platform for our Live Tours. Unlike zoom or google meets, our platform allows independent navigation of our virtual world, meaning you can look around in 360 degrees independently, or follow your tour guides ‘gaze’ at any time in the tour. 

If you would prefer to use zoom or an alternative video calling platform to experience a private tour however, this can be arranged.

How many people can come to the Live tours with a guide?

Our Live tours with a guide can host up to 20 people.

How does your company contribute to local communities?

Our partner tour guides get a revenue share from every tour that is purchased. In addition, our team works remotely with local artists and content creators from the destination to create the virtual tours, so our carbon footprint in making the tours is negligent.

Are your virtual tours child-friendly?

Each one of our virtual tours gets a PG rating, so you can choose the right experience for your family.

Are you trying to replace real travel?

Not at all. Our virtual tours are a whole new entertaining online experience, allowing you to learn about faraway places and immerse yourself in their culture from your home. It also has many things that you wouldn’t find on a typical walking tour – 3D models, animations, videos and photographs from historical archives. It’s also a great tool to use FOR travel. Curious about a destination? Why not try before you fly using one of our virtual tours?
