From Google Earth help:

Touring and saving directions

Once you have a route displayed in the 3D viewer, you can use the tour feature to "fly" the route in the 3D viewer, and you can save the directions to your 'My Places' folder for later reference.

Touring the Route

Select the 'Route' item at the end of the directions listing. Click the Play Tour button:

The 3D viewer automatically starts the tour from the departure point, oriented in the correct direction as if you were flying over the route you have marked. The tour follows the route, stops at the end, and zooms out to encompass the entire route in the 3D viewer. See Using Tours for more information.

Important Notes

The important points in the instructions are:

  • select the Route item at the end of the directions listing
  • click the Play Tour (enter image description here) button

So we have to note the important points in the documentation:

  • there is no Route item at the end of the directions listing:

    enter image description here

  • there is no Play Tour (enter image description here) button
