There is a small difference betwenn using the standalone and the embed version in your web browser. If you don't know the difference between both, please read this article: Embed with iFrame
In standalone there is a Play Button that, once it is pressed, will start the tour.
When using the embed version with the reduced UI is a Start button on the bottom middle of your screen.
Navigating through the tour
After the Tour is started there are 3 buttons in the bottom middle of your screen. Previous and Next that will navigate you through the individual tour stops. And Stop, that will stop the tour and will send the user back to the 3d mode of the scene and the camera will rotate around the scene center.
