I found Mark here on Tripadvisor. He is highly recommended for a good reason: his is prompt, he thinks about the needs of his customers and the service he offers is truly hassle free. Mark's price for one car is 600 yuan for the two of us and it was 50% more than the price we would have paid if we went with a group tour (groups charge an average of 190 yuan/ person). However, we didn't want to go through the hassle of stopping by tea/ jade factories (usually included in group tours) that we think are just a waste of our time so we thought paying more is worth it.
Mark provides the necessities for his guests: he has free drinking water (which cost so much at the Great wall- bring some bottles up with you if you plan to go all the way to the 20th tower) and lends a local mobile phone for easier communication. He will pick you up and drop you off wherever you wish, and even take you to a recommended restaurant, if you want to.
As a service provider, Mark was very professional (as other reviewers said) and speaks very good English. He is hands on with his clients. Initially, Mark couldn't drive us for the day but when his other customer cancelled, he was the one who showed up for us. Mark promptly responds to emails and other questions.He has other services apart from the Mutianyu/ Great wall tour which I'm sure are as value for money as this one is. We will surely get in touch with him again the next time we visit China.
