Great Wall: Jinshanling - Simatai West Hike

Hi everyone,

I am planning to travel as a couple on a day hike along the jinshanling and simatai west route.

Based on what I've read, i don't think we need to hire a guide at all. So we intend to hire a driver to take us to jinshanling and have him wait and fetch us at simatai west, back to Beijing.

I googled a few websites like quite expensive (RMB900+ to even 1200+)

What will be an acceptable price to hire the driver? Anyone have any driver/tour company to recommend?

Have you explored public transportation? I had a taxi driver contact we hired for your itinerary in 2008. He has retired and I have lost the number. You can check with any taxi driver you meet in Beijing.
