Experiencing good food in Washington DC is a no brainer for most because the central downtown area is practically saturated by all types of restaurants of every kind of kind. Name it, we have it....be it Japanese, Mediteranean, Turkish, Korean, Italian, French, or local fanfare. Somehow, when you ask us to tell you which Greek restaurant is the best in the Washington DC metropolitan, we would be inclined to point you in the direction of Komi restaurant.
To say that eating out at Komi isn’t cheap is an understatement but you are paying for more than just the food and ambiance, you are paying for the surprise element too. Why? You basically walk into Komi and asked to be surprised because there is absolutely no menu to pick your food from and you will be given a multi-course dinner for (pricing at the moment) $135 per person. You start off with a series of simple appetizing dishes that helps prepare your palate for healthier and heartier dishes later on. The chefs will then end the surprise with amazingly creative desserts. If you are in the mood for some drinks, an additional $70 will get you some wine pairing, courtesy of the wine experts behind the restaurant.
Komi is strategically-located near Dupont Circle and Farragit North Metros if you are heading over using public transportation but if you are using our bus charter Washington DC bus rental services and packages, you will be brought to the destination in complete comfort and convenience. The restaurant is open from Tuesdays, Wednesdays from 5.30pm till 9.30pm and they close a little later on Fridays and Saturdays.
The atmosphere at this Washington DC restaurant is extremely classy, elegant and elite, therefore, we do not think it is suitable for large groups unless a prior booking or discussion was held with the owners and management of Komi.
Komi is no stranger to awards and accolades as they have gone on to win over critics and foodie writer in the past. The number of courses, sometimes coming up to more than fourteen courses in one single meal, are often a pleasant surprise to visitors and guests. The dishes may come in small portions but dining up to fourteen dishes, especially the heartier dishes towards the end, can be very filling even for healthy eaters.
We think if you are looking for an extremely romantic atmosphere or if you are looking to impress some VIPs, Komi is a good and safe choice. And while you are at it, please feel free to have a look around our bus charter Washington DC bus rental packages. We look forward to hearing from you real soon.

Washington DC, being the capital of the country, is never short of museums to explore. And recently, another one sprouted in the midst of the already dense city center...and this time, it is all about the news and technology - welcome to Washington DC’s Newseum.
In this two hundred and fifty thousand square feet premise, Washington DC charter bus rental visitors will get to learn about and explore centuries of how news got delivered to residents. From ancient old methods of delivering messages via animals to the fast paced technology-driven ways of pumping up the news and wire. Some of the exhibits are pretty hands on, so, it is absolutely suitable for kids. Toddlers, on the other hand, are going to need some entertainment and distractions.
Finding the Newseum should not be any trouble at all because it is located right along the intersection of Pennsylvania Avenue and Sixth Street. In fact, it makes sense to visit the Newseum when you are making pit stops at the U.S Capitol, the White House and he Smithsonian museum instead of heading over on different days. This is when making use of a reliable Washington DC charter bus service makes more sense than driving yourself to the destination. During peak season, parking can be a lot of trouble as there are limited space.
What some of our Washington DC charter bus rental customers found interesting was (yes, the exhibits were amazing and truly interesting) the exterior of the building which makes it stand out, even with the White House being its neighbor. It is considered an architectural marvel because, outside lies a seventy foot tall engraving of the First Amendment made out of marble. The museum promotes and reminds visitors and residents about the America’s freedom of free press in a very fun and entertaining way. The authorities have done a very good job in ensuring that the exhibits are engaging enough.
Let’s just say that the Newseum is huge and one can expect to spend a couple of hours exploring all the exhibits and displays. It contains more than seven levels including some some awesome galleries the theatres. At the end of your visit, be sure to stop by their visitors’ center to get more information about the Newseum and also get some souvenirs to bring back home to those who were not able to make it to your Washington DC charter bus rental visit this time round.
And in the meantime, please head over to our gallery to check out our affordable bus charter Washington DC packages and services. We look forward to hearing from our readers in the near future.

The Franklin Delano Roosevelt Memorial in Washington DC is a place worthy to be visited by any Washington DC charter bus passengers – after all, he is the only President who has served the country for four terms, with his fourth term being cut short due to his death. The memorial was designed by a landscape architect, Mr Lawrence Halprin and it is a dedication in memory of the late President Franklin Delano Roosevelt and the era he represented.
Franklin Delano Roosevelt Memorial is open for group tours, and usually such tours would arrive on the grounds in a Washington DC charter bus because parking space is quite limited and paid private parking lots are found downtown north of the National Mall, but you may have to walk a bit to get to the memorial, that is why it is better to rent a bus to take everyone there instead.
The Franklin Delano Roosevelt Memorial was dedicated by former President Bill Clinton in 1997 and the memorial is built on a seven and half acre of land. Taking into consideration of the late President Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s physical disability, the designers created the memorial to be of one that is also accessible to those with physical difficulties as well. Many people think that Franklin Delano Roosevelt and his wife, Eleanor are first cousins, but the fact is that they are indeed fifth cousins and both shared a common ancestor, Nicholas Roosevelt, who happened to be Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s FDR’s great-great-great-great-grandfather and Eleanor’s great-great-great-great-great-grandfather.
Many of the status at the Franklin Delano Roosevelt Memorial can be touched because they were made to be interactive displays in the memorial grounds, but we always advise our Washington DC bus visitors to the memorial to try to resist from climbing onto the statues or sitting on any of them – even if it is for snapping a photo. Do note that the memorial sculptures were made in commemoration of a well respected US President and the people he led during one of the difficult and testing times in the American history.
As you walk along the Franklin Delano Roosevelt Memorial grounds, you will see huge blocks of rocks with words engraved on them that were quoted by the late President himself, such as the famous “I hate war” and the “Four Freedoms” in his State of the Union Address in January 6, 1941. Also found at the memorial is a small, man-made waterfall - and this is a perfect spot for you to take some photos before you leave the memorial to return home in your chartered bus.
