Looking for travel vr content

I am relatively new to the Oculus GO and I am interested in how best to  find immersive travel vr content. I’ve looked in the oculus store but there are just so many apps and I don’t see anyway to create filters for immersive  travel vr content.
  I would appreciate any and all feedback concerning this.
   Thank you.

    There's an unofficial Streetview app, but I've forgotten what it's called.

     Thank you Edmg for your response.
    I’m still waiting to hear from anyone else concerning what oculus Go vr travel content may exist and how best to find where I might be able  to get them.
      Thank you for any help anyone can give me.
      Have a good day.

    I have both an Oculus cv1 Rift and Go.  My Rift is best for armchair travel with Google Earth VR.  Unfortunately no mobile VR to date has enough processing power to run this.  Your best alternative with the Go is to search and watch the many YouTube videos out there imho.
    Alienware 17r4 Laptop with i7-7700hq 2.8/3.6, 32 gb ram, gtx1060 w/6gb ram, 256gb ssd, 1tb hdd, Oculus Rift w/2x sensors.  Now using an Alienware Graphics Amplifier (AGA) with Zotac gtx1080ti Blower and Asus vg248qe 144hz external monitor.  All works great!

    If you are still around, Wander is a very nice way to view surround pictures of famous paces, monuments and such. It is basically Google Streetview. However it is not true 3D, so indoor scenes or up close people are too big. Anything say 20 feet or more away looks good, so most scenery or monument things like the pyramids and such are good.
    The new Youtube app is nice. Type in a parks name or a country name or whatever and hit the 180 button. Yosemite got me cool films with indigenous peoples of South America and Gibraltar along with Yosemite stuff. Yellowstone gets a nice Old Faithful film. You can try searching vr180 and search terms on your computer in Youtube and then using that info to find more on the Youtube app which doesn't search as well.
    If you are interested in history try Rome or Athens in the Go store for apps that restore parts of those cities or try Titanic. If you like space look that up in the app store as there are cool tours of the solar system, flybys or planets, etc...
