Welcome to the Virtual Traveler:
While there are numerous websites and apps that offer 360-degree panoramic tours, there are few that combine the immersive photographic content with historical information. This website seeks to fill that gap by providing virtual tours that offer a 360-degree perspective while also explaining the significance of what you see. Virtual Traveler features both desktop tours and tours that can be viewed through Google Cardboard and similar headset devices.  The world awaits.....

Welcome to Virtual Traveler 2.0!
Over the past year every tour has been revised and is hosted on a new site, The move to a new site and the tour revisions offer a number of advantages over the old approach:

In short, every effort has been made to make the tours as close to a real visit as possible, and we hope that you enjoy learning about these wonderful destinations

Small VT GraphicTypes of Virtual Tours: There are two categories of tours available:

op Tours with audio narration, maps, photos and videos  are  featured on this site. They are more detailed and offer different levels of information. The dropdown banner provides a basic overview of the scene, and this is explained in greater detail in the audio voiceover. The points of interest in the voiceovers in turn are also shown in the photos in each scene. Finally, short (3-7 minute videos) from the web are embedded for those wishing to know a bit more. Some of the scenes also contain aerial videos and 3D videos to provide a fuller understanding of the panorama.
VR Headset Tours Every tour now also has a "VR" version for use with a headset and smartphone. These work on any headset and do not require the special versions with a capacitive button like Google Cardboard or Google Expeditions. They will also run on any other VR headset that has a built-in browser. No downloads are required, but you must be online to access the tours.

I am a retired international school teacher who enjoys visiting historic sites and creating virtual tours for students, the disabled, and armchair travelers.
I am continually building up this website, making desktop tours and "VR" versions for use with virtual reality headsets. Please bookmark the site so that you can return to see what has been added. Most of the software used to make these tours is free or inexpensive, and within the reach of most teachers and hobbyists. If you have questions about how to make these tours, suggestions for tours you would like to see, or suggestions for improving the tours on this site, please email me here.
