Who We Are

Our History

Around the world, there are women who will tell you of the times when they stepped outside of their boundaries and experienced the world in ways they’d never conceived of; awoke to the glories of remote cultures and natural places of unspeakable beauty; tackled challenges beyond their wildest imagination; and returned home with life-long friendships and a refreshing newfound sense of self. These women are clients of PRIVATE JOURNEYS, who annually clamor to secure one of the limited spaces on the next “Unleashed" Womens Adventure. They, along with our private clients who travel on our Custom Private Journey itineraries, are an important part of our twenty year history.

Our Founder and Pied Piperess Extraordinaire

Diane Terry, is a travel guru of the far-flung, is a published travel writer and photographer, trip designer and leader in the women's adventure travel marketplace. Since 1998, her transformative journeys have combined exotic exploration around the globe, the expertise of talented guides, culturally immersive activities, physical outdoor challenges, luxury pampering, and a well deserved opportunity to escape the routine demands of home and work in celebration of the freedom of adventure. Fueled by a life spent traversing the planet, a keen eye for experiential travel design and connecting people, Diane's nomadic passion, as well as her love of the culinary arts, was sealed early on [her parents' last namesakes were "Rover" and "Cook"]. Diane accompanies each and every one of our scheduled Unleashed Women's Adventures, relishing the friendships, incredible vistas, moments of shared joy and magic that come from being Unleashed. Her expertise is behind every Custom Private Journey itinerary.
