Going rate--Beijing to Badaling taxi ride roundtrip?

by SandiM Online Now Sep 13, 2011 at 11:18 AM

Anybody know what the CURRENT taxi rate is for a ride to the Badaling section of the Great Wall roundtrip? The guide I normally go with insists I can do it on my own on the bus but since we don't want to do that (too much hassle for 2 old ladies, rather take a cab) and since we want to go in the afternoon to get some sunset shots, we need to go by cab. So, what prices in RMB have you been able to swing? I contacted a company called (or something like that) and they offered to take us in a cab (non-English speaking driver, no guide) in the afternoon roundtrip, includes hotel pickup/dropoff, toll-way charge & fuel, for 700RMB. I'll have to check to make sure I don't get sidetracked into a Jade Factory, but that sounds fairly reasonable (?) for 2 people. They offered it for either Jinshanling or Badaling, but Badaling is closer so I might try to barter a bit with is 700RMB pretty decent or way overpriced?
