I think looking at virtual reality tours has an of element of digital marketing because it means you are able to immerse a person or people in a space which they are physically not but almost feels and looks like they are there using high-end virtual reality headsets such as HTC Vive and Oculus Rift.

The concept of virtual tours can divided in a number of subtopics which might sound like it’s a repetition of actions in virtual reality however the customization for each virtual reality tour is different.
