What a fabulous two-day experience! The harbor cruise was fantastic with wonderful views of the sights and a yummy lunch. We took the cruise after the city tour so we almost felt like experts listening to the recorded information about the places we were passing. The Blue Mountains tour on the following day was even more impressive. Getting out of the city center is a must when visiting Sydney and the Blue Mountains are simply spectacular. A visit to the Featherdale Wildlife Park only enhances the experience because you are allowed to get ridiculously close to the animals. Couldn't recommend this combo more highly!
While this trip is long and the weather is quite unpredictable in Melbourne, I would still highly recommend this experience to anyone visiting the area. We were drenched by the time we returned to the hotel, but the guide's knowledge and the amazing sights more than made up for this discomfort. Don't feel like you have to include the meal, however, because there are plenty options in the location where you stop for lunch (and the included meal was average at best).
Unfortunately, we visited right in the midst of renovation so it wasn't the best experience. The exhibits were still enjoyable and I can only imagine what it will look like when all of the upgrades are finished. I recommend this experience for everyone post-renovation.
