If it's a free tour then just thank the guide at the end and walk off. Spend your money elsewhere. If the guide complains then remind him that it was free and that if a fee was involved then it should have been advertised that way.

Davey you do know the guides work on tips? They spend 3 hours walking/talking with you around the city. That's kinda careless for you to say not to tip them.

Davey is probably one of those people standing still and enjoying a street performance for 10 minutes or more, and then quickly walking off the second the hat starts going around.

I agree with Geoff, 5-10 euro, depending on the quality of the guide. Even if it's not a free tour, a similar tip is merited for a tour in my opinion.
