I think the tour group should take a look at their logistics. I met 3 other English speakers (who were staying very close to me) on day 2 of my tour and we all thought we will be in the same tour the following day to the Tatio Geyser
Maybe indicate when the tours end as well as when they start.
Also, could have better English speaking agents for US customers. Had some miscommunications due to that. We usually like to book our own hotels decide tours as per your given itinerary. More like customized some may be private or in group tours. In the process, some things were misinterpreted.
