The TAG mission is Responsible Travel, the ability to extract more than the top layer from a place and give back to local female & minority-owned businesses whenever possible with our patronage/visits/trips.

We also want to create a community of explorers who will develop relationships with the places we visit and internalize these experiences by turning them into something they will use for the rest of their lives.
