Yes, we also were surrounded by Chinese nationals and tour guide, although we found our tour guide to be especially delightful. We weren't on the tour to make friends, but it was a rather lonely experience. The worst part of the tour was threefold: First of all, the itinerary failed to mention that on the last day of the tour, we would not be in Boston until after 8:00 pm. Therefore, we were unable to meet our 3:00 flight except by dropping out of the tour on the last day and booking an about $600 flight (for two) from Buffalo to Boston. That about knocked the wind out of our sails. Secondly, almost all of the hotels (although very nice) were at airports, disallowing any kind of getting a flavor of the "town" in which we landed, but after putting in a 14-15 hour day, we were exhausted beyond reason anyhow. Thirdly, the meals were mostly buffets or McDonald's with no oppertunity to visit a grocery store, liquor store, pharmacy, or any kind of store beyond a few spare minutes at Times Square (which was disappointingly brief-about an hour). So, time for a few momentos, but that is about it. People might need to buy a pack of cigarettes, or candy bar, perhaps a can of peanuts, a six pack of beer, a phone card, etc. Tourists might want to eat a Philly Cheesesteak in Philadelphia, visit a pub in Boston, spend more than an hour in Times Square (after traveling thousands of miles), swim in a pool, or soak in spa at hotel (if you got there before they closed, which we didn't). So, although we adored our tour guide and felt completely safe (a middle-aged woman and her teen-aged grandson), there were difficulties which were more than a little disconcerting.
