This was a full day trip. Masca was just the start, unfortunately we didn't stay there very long and it was quite a walk down to the end of the village which we didn't have time to do. We then went on to Garachico where we had lunch and a walk along the sea front which has been very imaginately... More

We have visited Masca Valley before with a coach trip. This time we decided to drive ourselves, it was the most hair raising drive! very small windy roads, with coaches and goodness knows what coming the other way with no warning. when we finally arrived at Masca Valley there was no where to park! we turned up at around 12.30pm,...

Tenerife's best kept secret.. Worth the drive.. we drove for miles around bends to chill the hardened driver, arrived to sit for hours just taking in the mountains and rock formations, decided to try for the bendy road which continued over the next mountain rather than driving back.. OMG just over the hill was a valley of green fields rolling... More

Spectacular views on very narrow winding roads. Go early to avoid meeting coaches on the bends. Can be quite hair-raising

We hired a car and drove to Masca from Adeje, what a beautiful area we stopped for lunch just outside Masca Village at a cafe hanging on the side of a cliff great food and great views. Be warned the roads are very narrow and twisting and 25 seater coaches use this road, they have to reverse to shunt themselves... More

I've been to Tenerife in 2013, but the trip to Masca is still in my head. The majestic view and the road to the village will be remembered forever.

This was the second experience we had of masca walk and both were absolutely amazing. This walk is not for the faint hearted. It will take at least 3 hours for the average walker and a reasonable level of agility and fitness is a must. Hiking boots advisable.While very enjoyable it is also up to the individual to assess if... More

There was nothing we could fault on this trip with Tenerife Tickets Excursiones - the guide was excellent and the driving superb. A beautiful area - do buy oranges and herbs from the old lady as you go down to the village - lovely and fresh. Also nice reasonably prices gifts in the area. A great value for money trip.

We were very grateful that we had a very good driver called Mateo that took us to Masca , as the road is pretty narrow , by moments you cannot fit two cars, we would not have wanted to be on a minibus. The place is perched on the mountains, and you can see the sea in the distance. There... More

If you ever stay in Tenerife you'll have to visit the Masca. I've been there by car and on guided tour by bus. Travelling by bus gives a lot more information than travelling by car. The bus stops here for a while, of course. It is just amazing and so beaatiful this place. Very few people live there now cause... More
