About Us

Generation Go, a Wilmington, NC based travel advisory, has its roots in transformational travel, after spending 15 years challenging under-served, under-recognized high school students with adventures around the world. Our love of exploration of this planet’s most intriguing places and the people that inhabit them led us to share our passion with you. With a combined 80 plus countries visited, millions of miles logged and connections made, we look forward to working with you in creating exceptional, transformational travel experiences.

After 44 countries and many years of incredible travel experience, Martin and Lou Green have decided to share their experiences with you. For 16 years the Greens have run a international leadership program (Dustin’s GreenHouse where they have exposed under-served high school students to transformational travel experiences.

From Great White Shark cage dives, to hiking the Andes, from swimming with piranhas in the Amazon to scuba diving in the Galapagos Islands, we take people out of their comfort zone to experience life changing events.

Favorite Quote: “Travel isn’t always pretty. It isn’t always comfortable. Sometimes it hurts, it even breaks your heart. But that’s OK. The journey changes you; it should change you… You take something with you. Hopefully, you leave something good behind.” — Anthony Bourdain


After planning my trip through Rwanda, Tanzania, and Zanzibar, I knew that there was no one else I would turn to besides Generation Go. The guides, accommodation, and local interaction are beyond parallel. Next up, Egypt!

From Northern Europe to cruising the Mediterranean and Alaska, they always seems to have connections where it matters. We are in an age overloaded with options, and Generation Go makes travel seamless and unique. Consider us transformed!

When John told me he lived in Thailand, I knew we had landed in the right spot. I wasn’t interested in generic tours. I wanted to experience life as local. Normally, I don't repeat destinations but I am already planning Thailand v.2 with Generation Go!

I have been to England over ten times but I have never been to England the way I experienced it with Generation Go. They set us up with underground restaurants, tickets to a sold out show at the Hammersmith Apollo to see Neil Young, and expert guides that showed us the true underbelly of London.

Generation Go blew us away on our honeymoon through New Zealand. We met local winemakers and musicians and stayed in incredible inns and country houses that we could have never found on our own. This was not your typical honeymoon and we will be back for more!

- David and Meg, The Hague, Netherlands

When picking a site for our destination wedding, we didn't want the typical Americanized experience. We were looking for something out of the box where friends could join us in diving into the local culture. John delivered with a hidden gem in Belize. Highly recommend Generation Go!

Not a day goes by that I'm not thankful for my journey, for the perspective I gained through the experience and the voice of change it has inspired in my heart.

My trip honestly impacted my life in so many ways and I cannot thank you enough for giving me the opportunity to experience such an adventure.

- Gaby, Greensboro, NC

I had the chance to experience things that I had never even dreamt were possible. WOW. I have no words, it was such a surreal experience. I learned so much about others, the world, and myself. Most importantly, I discovered how I am uniquely created to affect those around me.
