Follow the directions from the sealer mfg. re. wait time. Generally it's 3 days or so after grouting.

And yes, you've got it right. In your case only the grout needs sealing. If you purchase a good quality sealer and wipe the tiles dry after the recommended sealer dwell time (usually 10 to 15 min.) you don't have to worry about getting the sealer onto the tile's surface.
