Google’s definition of a point of interest is a business or similar entity that has a specific location, a name, and is open to the public. POIs are deemed eligible by Google and are typically attractions, cultural sites or other popular locations to visit. If you’ve listed an eligible point of interest, we will enable your tours on that Google Business Profile as well.

From there, the team will enable your integration and let you know once it is all set up!
