One of our camera operators will visit your premises (or tour location) on the selected date and capture the virtual tour, room by room, or area by area. We ask that all areas are prepared prior to the arrival of our camera operator. Each room / area will take approximately 10 minutes to capture.permalink

We will show you the finished virtual in the 'client area' or this website for your proofing. Any alterations can be suggested at this stage, if required. If the tour is the way you want it, we then require the balance payment before the files are released. Tour files can then be sent to you, or your web developers, with simple installation instructions. Or, we can add the tour to your website if required and this is included in the price.permalink
