This is a very good service in a town where stepping outside the town boundaries requires armed guides in case of polar bears. The drivers are friendly and the service runs to please the visitors.

Very friendly and always on time. We also did the sightseeing they offer, and it was definitely worth it – taxi drivers pick up a lot of good stories.
