Walk About Zion Travel is owned by Joan Peace. Joan is part of a rich Jewish and Israeli heritage, and her desire is to see all Jews and Christians experience the Land and the people of their faith. 

Joan resides in California, blessed to be near her greatest pride and joy – her three wonderful children, their spouses, and her nine super-wonderful grandchildren. 

With a Master’s degree in Curriculum and Instruction, as well as a teaching credential, Joan worked over 20 years in education –teaching all grades, writing curriculum and founding and directing several charter schools. She was the original founder of Escondido’s public charter school: The Classical Academy, now with seven campuses and over 4,000 students.

Joan’s knowledge of Israel is bountiful. She is the author of two maps: the Israel LAP MAP for the Jewish Traveler and the Israel LAP MAP for the Christian Traveler.  Joan also wrote Israel for the Christian Traveler, a three-time national award winner - two for Best Travel Guide and one for Best New Voice in Non-Fiction. Israel for the Christian Traveler is Amazon’s top-selling Christian travel guide to Israel (currently in revision process).

Joan’s passion is to bring as many people to Israel as possible, especially those who in the past would not have been able to afford the trip. She also is enthusiastic about utilizing the knowledge she gained in writing the travel guide and maps to provide itineraries that are unforgettable!

Walk About Zion Travel partners with Sar-El Tours, which has been in operation over 20 years and is one of the largest operators focused on Christian tourism to Israel.
