Buenos Aires Local Tours are free tours of Palermo, Abasto, Congreso and Plaza de Mayo and are a great way to get to know the city and the public transport system! Jonathan, the friendly Englishman in charge, takes visitors to both city landmarks and to lesser-known charmers which are often overlooked with the purpose of showing the unseen side of the city. The tour is by foot, public bus and subway so some coins are needed but other than that there is no cost (allthough a well deserved tip is welcome). The meeting point is the Garibaldi Statue in Plaza Italia at 11 am on Mondays through Saturdays.
