Self drive in Jordan? Or recommendations for a good driver/ guide with car?

Jump to last reply

Hi... My wife and I will be visiting Jordan in December with our 7 year old son... What is the feedback for delf driving in JOrdan? We will be going to Dead Sea, Mt Nebo, Petra, Wadi Rum, Aqaba, Jerash and Madaba...

I am an avid photographer so having the flexibility to drive by myself, change the route on the fly, add/ delete places in the itinerary and of course, stop often for pictures is VERY important to me... I prefer to drive on almost all of my European and American vacations... But how is it to Drive in Jordan? Is it easy? Is it safe? How is parking? Is it worth it?

Also, if I did not want to self drive, are there good reliable recommendations for a driver and a guide combination? Looking for someone who is a good driver but also very knowledgable to be able to be our guide too... And yes, english speaking,...

Your recommendations will be very much appreciated!!
