You can move around the tour on Facebook using the white navigation arrows.

Go to The Grove Hotel’s page to have a play with their tour and see how yours would also work.

Instructions

  2. Then they should go to the woobox app and install it.

Please drop me a line if something is wrong with these instructions. Google, Facebook and Woobox change details frequently – although normally not by much.
