Bus to Mutianyu

Is it fairly easy to take a bus to the Mutianyu section of the Great Wall and do it on our own or should we book a tour?

We will be staying in a Hutong Hotel so far would we be from the bus station?

If we hire a guide to take us does anyone know of a good and reasonable one?

No it is not simple to get there by bus. Better get a driver (about 500RMB) divided between the 2 of you. No use to have a guide.

Which hutong? Hutongs are everywhere, just residential areas. You will be close to many bus stations, depends to where.

Not that simple. On any day there are several buses number 936 departing from Dongzhimen but only some go up there.second, it doesnot go to The Wall. When you get off the bus you need to negotiate with a taxi to take you there. Then you need to find a taxi to take you back to the bus after, and again negotiate with the driver. This is why I said that it is not simple.
