We had a great private 2-day tour of St. Petersburg for less than the cruise ship tour. Insider Tours was recommended by my sister who had used them the previous year.

They take cash or credit cards. If you are in a mixed group they will need the currency to be the same. So 1 person can't pay by credit card and the rest by cash. Has to be all the same.
