Drying time shower tiles

I'm cementing 1" tiles over top of existing shower tray tiles. What kind of drying time would you give it before I apply the grout and how long would you allow for the grout to dry before using the shower?
The mortar that I'm using doesn't give ANY instructions on this. I'm guessing that because there's non-porous tiles below, then I need to give it more time than usual.

First, you hopefully meant 'curing time' because you used thinset, as drying time would only apply to mastic, which is the wrong product to use, not that going over tiles is a good process in the first place....
