He was an excellent. After the tour we went to the shop and purchased a few t-shirts. Really looking forward to coming back for another tour. - Linda Dea

★★★★★     Damaris helped me in my quest for a hat. And a few other items while I was browsing the store. She actually stopped me from buying the wrong phone case by making sure I checked the size with my phone. But the best is this....... I was shopping lst week with my grandson for goggles. The store wasn't open yet but the manager let us come in and look. They didn't gave what he wanted, but I returned to look around the store because of his kindness to my grandson! - Lynne

★★★★★     We took a dolphin cruise with Captain Gio. It was wonderful, he knew a lot about the area and we got to see some dolphins! Then we went to the store and loved it. Wanted to buy clothes, toys...all sorts of stuff. We got talking with Amee Patrick who was wonderful. She has kids of her own and knows all the fun kid stuff to do. Wish we could be in town longer to do it all but before I leave I am planning to get back and do some spending! - Ruth E

★★★★★     Upon our families visit to Outside Hilton Head it was immediately evident that your Captain, Amee Patrick, was incredible with children. She has a way of telling stories and has the ability to arouse enthusiasm among my grandchildren like no other guide/retail staff I've come in contact with. The time she spent with Grant and Maddie was innately unique to someone who not just connects with youth but empowers them. In life, our society is constantly responding to the demands of the environment we live in and rarely takes time to help plan for an extraordinary quality of life. Our time in Outside Hilton Head's retail store was so much more than our merchandise purchases. In my wide association, meeting with many great people in various parts of the world, I would like to commend Mr. Overton in clearly employing the best in his personnel. Rarely does a shopping experience extend this caliber of substance. Outside does. Captain Amee does. We would love to hire her as our guide for every day of our visit. - Sarah W.
