How much to tip for a free walking tour guide?
What is a reasonable tip, if any?

Come on man.... if it's a good tour it's worth something... even a coin.

When taking "free" shuttles from airport to hotel, I'd also tip the driver who helped with my luggage. When staying at hotel using points (i.e. free hotel room), I'd still tip the maids.

I truly do not think you have been over tipping. I've also given 20 euros when in Europe (10 for me and 10 for my Wife). The walking tours I have been on have been 2 to 3 hours and have been very interactive. I would have gotten far less enjoyment (and have) for very much more expensive tors with a guide.

If you can afford it, why not be generous if you truly enjoyed the tour!

They aren't running a charity. Pay for the service you receive as these people depend on their tips. Only a tit would stiff them after getting a tour from them.
