This is largely dependent on temperature. Tomatoes like nighttime temps above 60 and the hotter the better during the day (within limits, I suppose). Cool weather will slow ripening. If the tomatoes are full size, expect ripening to happen within 2 weeks. It is ready for picking when it falls into your hand with only the gentlest of tugs. That last bit of ripening is worth the wait!
