Tourists can go on EVA from Command Seats
There's no restriction for tourists being placed into the EAS-1 External Command Seats via the crew menu in the VAB.
Consequently, they man them while in space suits. Having them "leave" the seat thus puts them on EVA, which they should not be able to do.

Perhaps this is actually intended behavior, or not fixed on purpose. This behavior seems more appropriate to me.
My thinking is you can lock Kerbals in a can, and they can't get out. But even the dimmest Kerbal could probably figure out how to get out of a seat. Personally, I like this behavior, and consider it a 'feature', not a bug.
I do confirm this behavior, I'm on OSX v1.10.1.
Interestingly, I can get a Tourist out of their seat before I upgrade the Astronaut Complex (Kerbal astronauts can as well). At this point (before Astronaut Complex upgrade), I can't get a Kerbal astronaut (Jeb) to EVA from a capsule in orbit. But I CAN get a Tourist to leave an external seat.
