You will not find a bad review about this Tour " Longyearbyen in a Nutshell "
Great value for money 385 Norwegian Kroner about $43 US Dollars November 2021 prices,
You get a 2-hour tour of Longyearbyen and the surrounding area.
A tour around the town then up to the satellite station and Mine number 7 then a look at the Global seed bank plus loads of interesting stops along the route.
Of course photo opportunities along the way.

We had Vigo as our driver,
OK, he might not have got the email about political correctness, but he admitted that and was outspoken.
But definitely a character.

I recommend this tour.

I took the trip "Longyearbyen in a nutshell" with Cato. Recognized him from earlier in the day when he drove the airport bus in from the airport. And for an incredibly skilled guide he is with a wonderful amount of good information about the city and the surrounding area.

Was picked up at Funken Lodge where I stayed. And it was over 2 hours of driving and storytelling. Maybe had a little luck when I was the only one on the trip (were few tourists due to the pandemic).

Well worth a trip to join. And if you are lucky enough to have Cato as your guide, you are guaranteed a relaxed and knowledgeable trip.

My first time visiting Svalbard, I booked a tour of Longyearbyen as a start. And what a start! Cato, the bus driver and guide, had first hand knowldge and experience. And he shared with us. History, stories and facts. Cato was not in a rush, he took his time, we made stops here and there and Cato explained and pointed out different things to us.
This tour is almost a must for anyone who wants to visit Svalbard. Spend a day in town, take the tour, and leave the other activities for day two!

We booked the tour “Longyearbyen in a nutshell” last week, and we were 9 people in total. Vigo was our tour guide and he’s one of the coolest and funniest people I’ve met. He is very knowledgeable and he made us laugh so much. This is a great experience in Svalbard so don’t hesitate to book it.

We took the "Longyearbyen in a nutshell" tour. Its not cheap, especially as we were a family of four - but you will miss so much if you don't take this informative tour.

I'd give it 5 stars if it was cheaper! Only a 4 for that price :)

Just book online via the Svalbard Buss og Taxi website

I took this two hour bus tour on my first morning in Longyearbyen. It was a great intro to the settlement as well as a safe way to get to those points of interest just outside the settlement ie. the Global Seed Vault and the ever iconic polar bear sign. The driver stopped often for photos. We even had the added bonus of seeing a couple Svalbard reindeer during our little tour. It's a short tour and highly recommended!

I used Svalbard Buss of Taxi to get to and from the airport, to go to the Huset restaurant, and to do a tour of the area around Longyearbyen. The service was excellent and well priced.

I especially recommend the tour around the city of Longyearbyen. My guide was a white-bearded man who told us so much about the town, the people and the history, and who made sure that all questions were answered and any photo stops we wanted were taken. He was also very humorous!

These are good folks who provide a wonderful service!

We took the tour of Longyearbyen and surrounding areas and it was fantastic. Our guide, Lucas, was friendly, knowledgable and flexible. He provided information for the whole trip and allowed us to take photos whenever we asked. He gave information about the town and its history. I would recommend this tour to anyone coming to Longyearbyen, especially early on in your trip.
