1. It takes about more than one hour from Beijing to Badaling. So you will be too late to climb the wall, and you have to lodgin in the nearby villages or hotels and climb the wall the next day. My suggestion is you stay at a hotel in beijing and start early in the next day.
2. You can take a taxi from Tiananmen Square to Badaling and it costs about CNY 250. If you take a taxi in the airport, and it will cost more. A much easier and cheaper way is to take bus no.919 from Deshengmen Gate Station. The ticket costs only CNY 12. In Beijing, there is no taxi coupon practiced.
3. Is the price include all the fares from air port to Badaling, such as the transportation, entrance ticket, lunch and tour guide? You should make it clear, and make sure it is a reliable tour agent as there are many illegal tour agencies claiming a one day tour to Badaling. In my opinion, you can make the trip all by yourself which cost less than this price.
4. It is not true. You can reach an agreement with the taxi driver and set upon a fair price. Good trip!
