Nobody joins tours to the Wall. A guide is not needed. You just need transportation. Tell the driver where else you'd like to go.

As a local I can told you that you don't need a guide or a driver. People visit the great wall a lot .And the great wall is usually quite crowded. I have visited it two month ago, I went to the Badaling(八达岭). I simply got to the Deshengmen(德胜门) and took the 877 bus. The view is amazing!

We have been to Mutianyu - we hired a driver to take us there but no need for guide once you are there.

Yes.

Hire a driver to the Wall, and No guide is needed.

Try Gubeikou which is a wild section of the wall. View it on youtube first
