Abstract: At rapid development of information technology, computer is applied to all trades and professions making the whole society to improve. Virtual tour is a product at this period. On the basis of neural network, evaluation of virtual travel simulation and experiential system was conducted. Through a lot of questionnaires and collecting the relevant data, the evaluation model of virtual tour was established. Huangshan, Taishan, the Forbidden City and Wuzhen, as an object of study, validated the model. The results showed that virtual tour system of Huangshan and the Forbidden City is superior. Virtual tour system of Taishan and Wuzhen is relatively poor. This conclusion was consistent with the actual situation, indicating that the model is reasonable.

Keywords: virtual reality; virtual tours; virtual tourism; neural networks; evaluation models; virtual travel; simulation; China.
