Boston Harbor (formerly of the Asia Board) would appreciate advice from Middle East Travelers

Jump to last reply

Hello everyone, I'm spreading my Asia board wings and flying over the the Middle East forum.

I have searched the forums and couldn't find an exact answer for what I was looking for so I am asking for your assistance.

My next trip is Egypt/Jordan in February with my regular travel buddy, my old (or at least getting older) best friend and college roommate. We end up in Jordan (Petra/Jeresh) and she is leaving a day and a half before me. I am staying in Amman at the Four Seasons for two nights before heading back to Boston, and asked if they could arrange a car and guide. Well, they could for the (gulp) princely sum of over $600 for one day(and that's the "cheap" car!).

I have a few questions:

1) do I even need a guide or just a driver if I am just going to kick around Amman for the day?

2) Approximately what should I expect a reasonable amount should be to pay for a car and English speaking driver? I want an "official" driver (or at least one well known by Middle East board fodorites) as I am solo woman at this point in my trip and, although adventurous, am also careful.

3) has anyone ever seen/heard of a female guide in Jordan or does that just not happen? I have searched everywhere and although there are lots of female guides in Egypt, they don't seem to exist in Jordan.

4) anything I should not miss?

Thanks to those of you who have posted such great trip reports on Egypt and Jordan. Your tips and ideas are fabulous!
