Panoramio photos in Photo Tours

Earlier this year we launched photo tours in Google Maps. Photo Tours are made using public user-contributed photos from Picasa Web Albums and Panoramio.
Today we are making it easy, for the Panoramio community to discover which of their Photos are sponsored in photo tours.

To find the photo tours that contain Panoramio photos, check under the Explore tab in Panoramio and click on the option "Photos with tours". That will open a map with all the photos in Panoramio that can start a tour. To open a tour, just select the photo you want to visit from the map, and follow the "Photo Tour" link that you find under the photo. Please note that using photo tours requires Google Maps with WebGL.

We hope you have fun exploring tours. Each of your contributions to Panoramio have made this possible. This is a feature we are extremely excited about, and by making it more accessible, we hope you all enjoy it as much as we do.
