The Web Guided Tour is an advertisement of Emacs features.
It doesn't provide any help. So the "Help" menu is not appropriate.
We could create a new menu "Ads" ;-)
BTW, I noticed that the About screen doesn't say that the link
will start the browser (like it says on the startup screen).
Here is a fix:

Although I appreciate the connotation of "facilities", I think "features"
would be better understood by curious new users.
And if you want to emphasize that the button is a link to the World Wide
Web, why not "http://www.gnu.org" instead of just "gnu.org"?
