Tour Builder – Google’s new tool

Tour BuilderTour Builder is a brand new tool introduced this month by Google. It allows people to share a tour they have made and adding pictures, sound, text descriptions about the cities as well as videos.

This new tool could be used by tourism organisations or even hotels to promote their product. Even though it already has a competitor, DTOUR, Tour Builder is significantly different from it.  In this presentation, you will be able to see the advantages or disadvantages of such a product.
