Highly recommended trip for you and the family. You have to be a comfortable driver to go to Masca by hire car. Hiring a car costs around 25-30 euros. Should be cheaper if you book in advance.
I need to point out that the drive to masca is NOT dangerous. BUT it can be a scary. The last 2-3 miles are single lane when you come of the motorway. Although there is still enough space for 2 cars to get past. The problem is when their is a coach in front of you. There are lots of passing opportunities throughout this drive (every around 400 metres). Plus, there are lots of spaces to stop and take pictures. If you are a confident driver, and love TopGear.. then go to Masca, you won't regret it!
For the trek you need to get their early. We get their late in the day and just looked around the nice village. There are lots of little restaurants and shops in the villages. Views of the coast and valley are spectacular. That's why you just can't miss this from your trip to Tenerife!
