Assumed wait time

I would like to say 'assumed wait time', but there are several expressions like 'waiting period', 'waiting time' and so on.
Which is correct phrase? I'm not sure if 'assumed wait time' is gramatically and idiomatically correct.
I would be grateful if someone let me know it.

    I think 'wait and 'waiting' are both fine. However, I'd rather say " estimated wait / waiting time". It is a common expression. This doesn't mean that you can't use yours (assumed) in a specific context. If you provide an example, we will be able to give you more informed answers.

    Thank you very much for your responses.
    Im now making a time scheduling for a tour below;

    12:30-13:30 lunch time

    13:30-14:30 Assumed wait time to enter spot A

    To make it a sentence, it would be "I assume we are going to wait for about 1 hour to enter spot A.

    They look OK to me, but "anticipated" also would work.
