Can I list a business without a location?

We are a walking tour business with a location in Brooklyn, NY. We had hell when we first listed our business on Tripadvisor. They wanted our office location, and we gave it to them. That verified the address, but set it up in a completely different town than the tours were in. We got inappropriate requests and saw only trouble. Now it's finally fixed.


My question is if without an office location where we do tours, if we can still list our tours on Google Business. I see so many other tours on Google Maps and I don't see why the listings should be comprehensive!


Our company is Visit Hasidim Tours

Hi @Frieda V


Firstly, when you create a business page, you need to use the businesses address for verification.


Then, if you don't want the full address listed, you can select in the address section "I serve customers at their location". This is referred to as a serviced area business, and you can select a radius of where you serve, say 20 miles  ( Don't add more then 40 ).


So, you have to use your address for verification, but you can select SAB if you want the address hidden.
