I know of various people who announce a "guest wifi" that transparently
proxies all traffic via Tor. I am not a fan of this method, as it does
not take care of application-level privacy leaks and exposes users to
other dangers without their knowledge (like sniffing or traffic-altering
exit nodes). The idea of a "captive portal" that explains how to
download and verify Tor Browser, on a network that only allows to
connect to Tor relays and IPs (and mirrors), exists, but
I've not seen any implementations of it.
