I expect people will split into groups to go and do whatever they want. If there's anything you've done already, you can join a different group, so you don't have to plan too much for that. I will do Niagara falls with you and anyone else that wants to come, probably before the conference, rather than on the weekend after. If other people want to go down there on the weekend, though, then we can do something else while they do that. There is so much to do and see in Toronto that people will have to pick and choose which packages they're most interested in maintaining, as it were. ;-)
Any specific reason for doing the falls before the conf? Like, in the weekend there are more tourists in the area, or what?
I found these organised tours, which are supposedly pretty good: http://www.toursinniagara.com/tour_info.html
But also, Barbara (the woman of my bed and breakfast) also does a niagara falls tour, we get more input in the program (we can stay longer in the evening, eat where we want, etc). If you want, I can forward you some mails with more info.
There's also a dude who did some further recommendations for things to do at the Falls (such as "create your own trip"), see the comments at http://dieter.plaetinck.be/off_to_toronto_july_14-28_Archcon
If it were up to me I think I would take Barbara's tour, but surely you guys know the area better (Loui and Ricardo reading?), so I want your input!
