Cutting back tile and grout


I'm installing a new door in the walkout basement. The floor is tile. I plan to use a sill pan for the new door and will need to cut back some tile and grout to get the pan to fit correctly. It needs to be cut back 3/16-1/8" at the most.

I've never worked with tile in any capacity before. Wondering what the best tool and/or technique for the job is.

What about the last inch or so once I reach the wall?

Edit: I suppose that's where the jamb extensions were.
