I'm looking to visit the Simatai part of the Great Wall when I visit Beijing next month. Is it best to wait until I arrive and arrange something then or book before I leave the UK with a tour company?

Sorry to tell you that the Simatai Great Wall is under reconstruction right now. There has no fix date when it will open to the public so far. Please choose other sections of the Great Wall in Beijing. And we would like to provide the Great Wall tour for you.
