if you want to make a group of spherical panoramas into a connected virtual tour, Pano2VR, Kolor PanoTour, and KRpano “Make Vtour” droplet will all do an excellent job creating 360° virtual tours with maps, hotspots, etc, all are available as free demo versions, and which is “best” is a matter of personal taste, which workflow or interface you prefer etc
also see the following videos on virtual tour creation with the apps mentioned above

Thanks for the prompt response , I was looking for doing this on Google Street View… I have already hosted http://youvis.it/TYt62c on youvisit …now I want is Google Street view …as the hosted tour …Seen a couple of tours on street view …which seemlessly integrates one into the other…

if you need Google Street View integration, see WalkInto, they provide a GSV virtual tour service
also Round.me 360° pano hosting allows Virtual Tours and stereo VR for headsets

Thanks once again …But walkinto does not support google cardboard or any VR …I need to make the same VR enabled using streetview …

currently, i believe you would have to roll your own site or app to support GSV hosted virtual tours & Cardboard VR, or otherwise hire a developer to do it for you
but things are constantly changing in this field, wait 6 months and everything will likely be different :)

As far as I know, the only way to get a linked tour directly on Google Street View is to apply for the Google Trusted Photographer program where they will give you access to the Street View Editor once your application is accepted.

Thanks to all the useful info.
Hoping to not be off topic, I was wondering if anyone have any news about when the Street View Trusted Program enrolling will be re-opened?
I applied last 15th of April, on the 19th of April I received this email:
“Thank you for your interest in the Street View | Trusted Program. We’re in the process of reviewing our current policies for the program, so we’re pausing enrolling for the moment. However, you can still contribute photo spheres to Google Maps instantly using the Street View app. More info on the Street View app can be found here. ”
Anyone have any idea about when the “process of reviewing” should arrive to an end?
Waiting for that moment, anyone know any other way to link to a business his virtual tour under “see inside” beside use Street view editor?
