Overview

Unseen Trails are tours of the lesser known areas of Dubai They call us visual and culinary storytellers. ​ At Unseen Trails, we believe in the power of sight and taste to transform our experience of the world. We believe culture can be savoured through the senses and the stomach, and that the magic of a city can be captured with the click of a camera. ​ Here, between our eyes and our tongues, the most vivid memories are forged. The places we have been live on not in kitschy fridge magnets, but in our photograph of that one unforgettable face smiling through the crowd. The flavor of a community is found not in Michelin stars, but in muddled translations of foreign dishes and encounters with strange new spices in alleyway eateries. ​ Join us in our quest to see the Unseen. Urban explorer, food lover, or photography enthusiast, all are welcome to enter into our exploration of the city we love. ​ No bells. No whistles. Just great food, surprising sights, and the chance to encounter the unexpected. ​ See. Taste. Explore.

I really recommend this trip! We took the early tour, which meant that we started at 5 in the morning. But totally worth it! We've been 14 people (only three Jeeps), three birds and a tonne of amazing breakfast stuff. The guys were really helpful,...More

Al Quoz
Al Quoz sits literally at the halfway point between
old and new Dubai. At first sight it has little to
recommend it: warehouses and factories dominate the
area, with some residential areas on the outskirts.
Heavy goods vehicles roar up and down the roads and
laborers stop at small hole-in-the-wall cafes for a
cheap lunch. But it is fast becoming a magnet for art
lovers: Alserkal Avenue is a significant contemporary
