    Blaire, Parts of the Great wall are free, if you're prepared to do some pretty tough treks to remote areas. Usually the parts of the wall closest to Beijing are the most popular, especially Badaling. There'll be a cost for transportation to the wall, and fees for guides and souvenirs etc. Probably best to pre-arrange a day trip with one of the many tour companies in Beijing - check with your hotel - that of course will incur a fee, but I think it'll be worth it.
    I have some other tips for travel to China you might find useful:

    Beijing in November is pretty chilly, and often sees the first winter snowfall.
