    if you want to make a group of spherical panoramas into a connected virtual tour, Pano2VR, Kolor PanoTour, and KRpanoMake 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

    krpano 1.1.9 and PanoTour 2.5 also have stereo VR headset support included

    note that PTGui and AutoPano are for stitching panoramas, not making virtual tours

    also see the following videos on virtual tour creation with the apps mentioned above

    Kolor PanoTour –

    Krpano Make Vtour

    if you need Google Street View integration, see WalkInto, they provide a GSV virtual tour service

    https://walkinto.in

    also Round.me 360° pano hosting allows Virtual Tours and stereo VR for headsets

    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

    https://developers.google.com/cardboard/

    but things are constantly changing in this field, wait 6 months and everything will likely be different :)

    Hemant,

    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?

    Cheers
    Lando
