Network Link for Tour hosted in Google Drive

The KML file for this tour is in the attachments section at the bottom of this page. You can download it and open it in your Google Earth.
You can also share the tour using a network link, which allows you to maintain control of the file while still sharing it with others to view on their Google Earth. To open the network link, copy this URL, go to your Google Earth Pro click Add>Network Link and paste the link into the dialog box.

The red highlight is the file ID from Google Drive, you can create your own network link by substituting a file ID from a KML file hosted in your Google Drive, and then using this URL format to create direct links to your KML file (that makes a network link that can be shared with others through this URL)
