We didn't visit Badaling, but went to another section that was a stopping point for the emperor when visiting Mongolia. Our tour guide was very informative and helpful.
I arranged this airport pickup because my flight was arriving at midnight, and I wasn't sure that I could catch a train or bus to central Beijing. When I arrived, nobody was there. After having an information booth call the company, I learned that the driver was held up in traffic, and the company offered to reimburse me the cost of a taxi. This is exactly what I didn't want. For the next hour my taxi driver was basically yelling at me in Chinese, communicating nothing, and clearly upset that he had to drive into the city center.
The drive back to the airport was fine, but I didn't really need that as I had already learned the public transit system.
