I can't answer the taxi question, because I've always used private drivers.

However, I can recommend a tour company we've used for Visa invitations & registration. I know they can book train tickets too and have an office in the U.S.

Are all your Visa and Registration stuff being taken care of? If not, they are a great option. My sister used them to visit me in Russia.

The response by bookwurm 70 seems to take good care of the transportation question.

We could ,however, strongly recommend The Cafe Pushkin as a fine restaurant. A throwback to old Russia and open 24 hours.

use http://www.go-russia.com/ for both (transfer and tickets) ... I've used them in past for airport transfers and tickets - and they were just great ...
