In the afternoon the site is not so crowded (if you go in high season... and the colours are very nice.
In the cite there is not much to see, the best are the tombs on the far left after the first main building (go there first) then come back and finish the tour with the forbidden city where there is not much to see.
Consider that you can go out of the city in the opposite way you entered so you can look at both sides (zigzagging) till the end and then go out instead of doing a "circle" tour of the site.
Great light at dusk.
Consider a 2 hour visit.
