    Tourdescription About the audio tour

    A comedic train ride by a corny character from Joburg. Jump on the train at Woodstock station and ride through the Southern Suburbs while learning - and laughing - all about South African boytjie culture. Experience the humdrum Cape Town white-collar commute through the eyes of a self-deluding out-of-towner, who may actually just be a bit too close to home...

    Startingpoint Directions to starting point

    Woodstock train station is located just off Albert Road, Woodstock. From the entrance of the Woodstock Exchange, cross the road and walk down the side road of a lime green building towards the tracks. Follow the people up the stairs of the overpass to access Platform 2. Take the Southern Suburbs train line to Simonstown or Fish Hoek. You will need a valid ticket. Press start once you're on the platform.

    Tips Tips

    Places to stop along the way:

    The train takes you automatically through ten train stations, and you may continue onwards thereafter.

    Best time of day:

    Any time before dusk. The journey takes roughly 25 minutes and must be done in the daytime.


    Woodstock train station is not the safest place in the world. Do not do the route alone if you're unfamiliar with it. Keep everything of value concealed when at stations and on the train, and be aware despite having your headphones in. The route is perfectly timed for Metro Plus ticket holders.
