MyJohannesburgInfo launches virtual tours and multi-media features for listed companies

Published: Fri Aug 27 2010

MyJohannesburgInfo, the online travel website, has recently announced the launch of their new virtual tour functionality which aims to offer visitors to the website detailed and eye-catching views of various attractions, while providing listed companies with unparalleled exposure.

The independent travel website, part of the global MyDestinationInfo network, aims to offer the most comprehensive and accurate listings of the region's top attractions, including Johannesburg restaurants, Johannesburg accommodation, activities and tours.

Managing director Peter Thompson believes that these new virtual tours will be of significant benefit to both advertisers and site visitors. "MyJohannesburgInfo has always aimed to create an online environment that gives website visitors an invaluable travel resource, while providing local tourism operations with the all the support and exposure that they need. The virtual tours are simply an extension of this."

The virtual tours, which can be used by restaurants, hotels, guest houses, and most other travel ventures, are to be delivered using a state of the art online media player created by Plush Media, exclusively for the MyDestinationInfo network, and each tour will be compiled at Plush Media's headquarters in Spain.

Each company that signs up for the virtual tours will have them featured on their listing page, and visitors will be able to zoom and pan a high-quality 360 degree image of the establishment.

Thompson also believes that this new feature sets MyJohannesburgInfo apart from other local travel websites as they continue to develop new and exciting ways in which to interact with visitors and local business. "Over the last two years MyJohannesburgInfo has regularly added new and exciting features, from a comprehensive Johannesburg trip planner, to a fully functional booking engine offering top deals and specials, and the addition of virtual tours is just indication of the website's commitment to local tourism."

About was founded in 2006 by two young entrepreneurs Neil Waller and James Street. The key to the success of the network is the high level of support a committed team provides and the fantastic group of local franchisees who run their sites to the highest standards.

The two young entrepreneurs have reached the finals of a number of major competitions such as Online Business of the Year in the StartUps Awards 2009, Young Entrepreneur of the Year in the GBA Awards 2009, winners of the UKFAST 'Travel' Digital Entrepreneur of the Year Awards 2009 and the 2010 UK Trade & Investment London Exporters Award.
