We too the double decker bus through the entire tour. The tour guide was excellent, informative, and funny! All the staff was very nice and helpful, from the ticket office, the bus, and the shuttle.

All the buses we were on had air conditioning. It was mid-90s the 2 days we were there and the AC was nice. All they're buses also have bathrooms and outlets for charging phones.

They usually pick people up from hotel if you are staying in D/C. Also you can park by their office at 420 L'Enfant Plaza, cost per day is around $20.
