I clicked on a hot question on Skeptics and, at the top of the question, was asked to take the 2-minute tour. "Sure." To me, this tour seems presented as an overlay over existing content (the question I was reading) because of its drop shadow and the dimmed appearance of content underneath. In the context of this interpretation, I expect to see a way to close the tour and reveal the question I was reading, but it appears to be uncloseable. AdBlock revealed that the tour is no overlay but an entirely different page. That's fine, but I think this can upset new users and therefore the tour either be made closeable or no longer imply through visual cues that it is an overlay at all.

    Each of the SE sites is different with their policies, and you should probably invest those two minutes.

    I think this can upset new users Why? Aside from the answer below showing how to close it, why would this be upsetting to new users? It's information they need to know anyway.

There is a minimize button on the initial banner:

Skeptics Minimize Button

When you click that, there is a close button on the smaller banner:

Skeptics close button

Both of these appear with AdBlock active, for me.
