So far, only one guided tour has been in preparation -- the guided tour for beginners. This was initially developed in 2008, but was not completed as the focus shifted to first improving the overall quality of the site. The portion of the tour created so far covers basic definitions of groups, subgroups, cosets, and Lagrange's theorem, along with a number of exercises.
{{quotation|'''There is a lot more material on the website than what is covered in the guided tour.''' If you are interested in reading up material on the website that may be relevant for beginners, try using the search bar, and also look within these categories: [[:Category:Basic definitions in group theory]], [[:Category:Basic facts in group theory]], [[:Category:Elementary non-basic facts in group theory]].<br>Based on user experience, the following topics, which will ''eventually'' be part of the guided tour, but are not yet included in it, are very popular among people who are doing/have just completed an introductory course in group theory: [[symmetric group:S3]] (also, its [[element structure of symmetric group:S3|elements]], [[subgroup structure of symmetric group:S3|subgroups]], and [[linear representation theory of symmetric group:S3|representations]]), [[symmetric group:S4]] (also, its [[element structure of symmetric group:S4|elements]], [[subgroup structure of symmetric group:S4|subgroups]], and [[linear representation theory of symmetric group:S4|representations]]), and [[dihedral group:D8]] (also, its [[element structure of dihedral group:D8|elements]], [[subgroup structure of dihedral group:D8|subgroups]], and [[linear representation theory of dihedral group:D8|representations]]).
