About

ManYou is not a word. It’s a phrase, which in Japanese means “Enjoyment to the max”. Therefore, ManYou Travel means enjoy your travel to the max.

Our aim is to provide you, our valued customer, with quality, unique tours of Japan and Australia’s Northern Territory, that you can access and enjoy to the max, at highly competitive prices.

ManYou Travel Is a start-up business in Australia. However, that does not mean we are inexperienced.  We have formed a strategic alliance with ManYou Travel in Fukuoka, Japan, which specialises in uniquely enjoyable tours, to help us to achieve our aim as stated above.

As a matter of fact, we have done our homework. Tours to Japan, of a similar duration as offered by our competitors, and for similar fees, in general, DO NOT include your air fares to and from Japan. ManYou Travel tours include ALL travel fares from Australian International airports of departure Darwin, Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne, transfers during your tour, and ALL entry fees to all attractions, monuments etc during your tour. This means once you arrive at your Australian International port of departure, and until you return, all your travel fares are pre-paid. You don’t have to buy an additional airline ticket to enjoy your holiday, and another one to get back to Australia once it’s all over.

ManYou Travel is also working with our Japanese partners to bring Japanese tourists to Australia. More about that will be posted as we organise tours. Essentially, as the mascot indicates, this makes ManYou specialists in travel between Australia and Japan.
