You probably have what is called a mud job. If the tub has a shower incorporated into it, and that shower is original to the house, the walls behind the tiles are concrete. The only time tiles are over plaster is if the homeowner did it.
If the tile you want to remove is in close proximity to the bathtub walls, the job will be almost impossible without damaging the tile you want to keep.
If you can answer the question about the shower and post pictures, I can help.
If not, I can't.
