With 175 in-the-know guides around the world, from Chicago to New Delhi, Georama is a new-to-you virtual reality travel platform offering live tours of destinations around the world. The company launched a consumer services platform in late 2015 and is now targeting planners, venues and destination management companies that don’t have the budget or time to conduct site visits in person. The high-definition video tours provide a way to explore a city or property in real time through a local’s eyes. Meeting profs can instruct the guide—via smartphone—on where to go and what to ask to get the inside scoop. You can also browse past tours online.
