booked the nonstop tour, got the tourist tour
Nov 2019
For a country with an unbelievably huge amount of bus companies, it's surprisingly hard to find a connection between Cabanaconde / Chivay (read Colca canyon) and Puno. After talking to the locals we chose 4M and thought we'd made a good deal since they were the only company offering a nonstop bus ride without the touristic stops and a "guide". We paid only half of the touristy bus (25 instead of 50 USD). When the bus arrived in Chivay they told both groups (touristy and non-touristy bus) to get . When we asked about it, they said that there is only one bus.
So you basically only have the choice of paying 25 or 50 USD for a bus ride with three dreadful stops and occasionally voice over from the guide sitting on the bus.
Apart from that, the bus itself was comfortable and on time.

Cusco to Chivay - good service and excellent Guide!
Oct 2019
The pick up was on time and we had the van for ourselves until the transfer point where we had a whole bus for ourselves. The driving was good and the service as well.
But the biggest delight was our guide Oscar! He gave information about the region and what makes Colca Canyon so special. What was really touching is his passion for his community and the animals along the way. He threw teats out the window whenever he saw a stray dog on the side of the road, he gave his newspaper to locals who live in a remote area, and of course the wild rabbits (see the other reviews).

Great ride and service - Chivay to Puno
May 2019 • Couples
We used 4M for our trip from Chivay to Puno, basically it was our tour operator that booked the trip and we did not know the company or what to expect.

The trip is done in such a way that you stop along the way to certain interesting points : like at 5000 meters altitude, at the lake to see the flamingos and a few other stops. They will give you a small map of the trip so you know where you are stopping and what you are visiting. It usually take 10 minutes or so enough for people to walk around a take a few pictures.

They do a stop for lunch where they give you sandwich and a tea which was actually pretty big, fresh and tasty. They also give you a small bottle of water in the bus which comes quite in handy.

There is a toilet in the bus so you do not have to worry about that either.
The bus we traveled with was very clean and spacious, we had enough room for our feet.

There is a bilingual guide on the bus which explains the stops along the way as well as other points that you drive by. She will even take care of the taxi once you get to Puno in case you do not have a pick-up already done.

All in all it was a very good experience, the ride was safe and in time, the stops on the way to Puno interesting and fun and the whole service really good. Most definitely recommend 4M to anybody who would like to have a safe and interactive ride from Chivay to Puno.

Excellent trip from Chivay to Cusco
Jun 2019 • Couples
The trip was very well organized, which is even more amazing considering the fact that there is no real alternative for this route. Freddy is a chill driver. Oscar is a fantastic host and had some interesting facts to share. The stops were amazing. Van was in excellent shape. Oscar even arranged a taxi to our hostel. Definitely worth the money!

4M Bus from Chivay to Arequipa
May 2019 • Couples
When we arrived at Chivay, it was very organized. They took our luggage and we were able to go to the pharmacy, ATM and grab some pizza to-go before the bus left. Turns out the bus was going to Puno, but we needed to go to Arequipa. But they had plans to switch us to another transport at the restaurant at the halfway point. We ended up in a taxi so not as comfortable as the bus, but he got us there in a good time!

Excellent service but you pay for it.
Apr 2019 • Couples
We took the 4M coach from Chivay to Puno as we needed to go on a certain day. The service is excellent with dual language guide. It felt more like a day tour. They stopped for a drink and sandwich which was included. Other view point stops for photos which was great. They checked you knew where you were going at your destination and got taxis safely for you. However you do pay for the service although clean and comfortable. Our trip to Puno was 50 dollars. 70 soles from the other companies. You'll notice that generally the 4m leave from a different place so you don't find out how much cheaper you can travel. HOWEVER if you are not a confident traveller then all is sorted for you so don't be put off.

Not worth the extra money, saves time though

The stops were very short and we were rushed to have lunch. We were only four people in total maybe that’s why they thought we could make it faster.... the guide was friendly and arranged a taxi for us in Cusco to get to the hostel.

Super impressed - especially with Susana

I took 4M from Puno to Chivay and didn´t know what to expect. I hadn't read TA reviews actually beforehand and am surprised to see their overall review score so low. I used 4M because the reliable local companies I've used before don´t do this route. I loved that we stopped to learn more and take photos. They were on time both leaving Puno and getting to Chivay (arrived early which was awesome!). The best was their staff, however. Henry, the driver, was great. He was friendly and drove very very safely and his bus was immaculate. I sat in the front seat so I had a great view of his driving the whole time. Even better than Henry was Susana. She went out of her way to help me both book a trip with them from Chivay to Arequipa and making sure I got to my hotel with my luggage safely. This is low season and there were only 3 of us on the bus. She really could have just not given it her all since there were so few customers but you would have thought she had 50 people on board the way she gave us the overview of the land, the history, etc. etc. Might be a little more expensive but some bus lines in Peru have abysmal safety records. I'd rather pay more and get there safely and not have to worry about my luggage. A sincere thanks to Susana for going above and beyond helping me with my luggage!
