Need a reliable and knowledgable guide for Jordan

I would like to find an English speaking guide for Jordan. They need to have excellent knowledge of Jordan's history, the geography and some places that are not part of the standard tours. I want a guide who can design a tour for me personally, and it must include local experiences, not just the famous places but a taste of the food, architecture and cultural traditions.

I have heard that Jordan has great dive sights, so I want a guide that know about diving spots, the best snorkeling spots, climbing and hiking in national parks or other areas, or any other sports.
They also must know about places to stay from luxury to camping, because I want to have different experiences, also accommodation where I will meet local people.

I don't want to travel with a big company on a bus with 50 other people, I am looking for someone who gives personalized tours for 1 to 10 people because I hope to travel with a small group of my friends..

We did have a guide on our trip to Jordan but he was thru a major tour operator.We tried our best to It was so much nicer traveling with a local. He took us "off the beaten track" as we requested. We ate in a private home ,drove thru a couple of local villages, went to a country fair and witnessed a typical Jordanian wedding party. My suggestion to you would be to call the top 2-3 tour operators for e.g. A&K, Kensington etc.ask ask to speak with their Jordan specialist..they may be kind to you and provide a name.
Enjoy your travels

We had a wonderful driver/guide in Jordan - Bashar Herzallah. I can't speak to the diving experience but I'd recommend you connect with him to ask.

Here's a link to our blog

His contact information is:

Or he's on Linked In.
