Style Style Small Group Tour Small groups are usually defined as between 10 and 24 travelers, often less. If you're the kind of person who enjoys more intimate experiences and personal service this is a good choice. All else being equal you will pay a premium for this style vs a larger group tour.
Private Guided Private tours give you the undivided attention of a guide, and often involve special access to sites and unique experiences not available to larger groups. This is a great option for families, couples, and small friend groups. Expect to pay a bit more for the extra service.
Self Guided Tour A travel company plans your itinerary and arranges all the logistics including lodging, local activities, and transportantion. You have the flexibility of a solo trip while still getting the convience and time savings of expert planning. Get 90% of the benefits of a tour, without a guide.
Group Tour Groups are between 25-60 people, typically ~30-40. Usually there will be many opportunities to split off and enjoy meals and excursions in smaller groups. This is the most economical way to travel, saving up to 40% versus booking the same itinerary yourself.
River Cruise These vessels are smaller than most ocean cruisers, limiting which amenties are available. Passenger counts can vary. One of the biggest advantages of a river cruise is the ability to dock at smaller ports and local villages.
Small Ship Cruise Small ship cruises usually have a max passenger count of 500. The primary purpose of these trips is to spend time off the vessel in local ports (e.g. Mediterranean) or experiencing nature (e.g Galapagos or Antarctica). Cabins can vary from budget to luxury.
Large Ship Cruise This is the "floating city" experience, with multiple ways to enjoy your vacation aboard the ship as much as on land. Ships are multiple floors, provide several activities, culinary, and shopping options. They often make fewer stops and have less time available for shore excursions.
Retreats Similar to a self guided tour but staying in one location only with activities and day outings included as a part of the stay.

Top Mekong River Attractions & Experiences

Top Mekong River Experiences

    Touring the awe-inspiring stone complexes of Angkor Wat, Cambodia, the world’s largest religious monument.

    Drifting past a parade of brightly hued pagodas, wats, and Buddhist temples. 

    Encountering everyday but still-exotic life on and in the river: fishing boats, sampans, floating markets, children swimming, women doing their laundry.

    Visiting the cities of Hanoi and Saigon, Vietnam, and Phnom Penh, Cambodia, to witness their progress following the turmoil of war in the 1960s and 1970s.

Well thought out trip itinerary (particularly the 2 day boat trip down the Mekong), well organised and often the opportunity to get some first hand experience of local cultures through the group leader's local knowledge of the places visited.
