Slightly Nervous? To Be Expected, But Don't You Dare Mention It
Lauren_S
, Apr 2022
Everything started great! They asked how many in our group of 15 had been on a segway before - no one raised their hands. We got individually trained for ~1 minute on how to turn/operate the segway. This was in VERY close proximity to others in the group (as you can see in the photos). They then showed us a brief video and then had us line up to leave the shop. The problem with the line was we were all inches from each other, so it was a little nerve racking for a group of first-timers to be that close to each other in a line waiting for the go ahead from the tour guide. While we were in line my step-mother mentioned that she was nervous after such a short training. Upon hearing this, an employee (who we later learned was the owner) walked up to her and said, "Are you nervous on the segway?", She - thinking he'd give her a couple more minutes of instruction - said "Yes." He said, "Well then get off!". We didn't realize what was happening - it all happened so fast. The rest of us in our group turned around and realized that our step-mom wasn't with us anymore. They had kicked her off the tour! For simply saying she was nervous after such a brief tutorial and standing bumper to bumper in the shop in a line. No matter what she said they wouldn't let her back on the tour. We were all shocked! It's not like she had less experience than the rest of us (it was the entire group's first time). It's also not like she couldn't operate the vehicle. She did a great job balancing, turning, stopping, starting, etc. in her ~1 min practice (even better than others). The ONLY think she did different was voice out loud that she was nervous (to be expected - we were all a bit nervous but we didn't get caught saying it by the owner). BEWARE - do. not. voice. hesitations. Do not ask for additional training. Apparently saying you're nervous on a segway is the equivalent to yelling "fire" in a movie theater. Our group of 4 ended up getting a refund since we didn't want to go without our entire group. It was a big bummer since we had all been looking forward to the tour. And my poor step-mother was so embarrassed even though she did nothing wrong.

Safety is our highest priority and sometimes, certain "tells" present themselves that indicate that a guest would not only not enjoy the tour, but possibly hurt themselves or others. While we understand and regret that being denied participation puts a damper on a trip, it is better for everyone when the biggest injury on vacation is to someone's pride. As is our policy in these situations, a full refund was issued.

We decided to take this tour first to give us a lay of the land for places we wanted to go back and spend more time, and it did exactly that. The perfect way to see DC.
