Guide to Jordan with excellent local knowledge - can anyone recommend?

by /bio/saharasands »

Can anyone recommend a local guide (English speaking) in Jordan who has extensive knowledge of the country, who knows the famous sites well, but who  can also suggest and take me to places that most people don't go? I have very broad interests, so I want a guide who knows the best of the landscape as well as the places of historic interest, and who can also show me how people live in Jordan.

I enjoy hiking, swimming and other outdoor activities, so the guide needs to be one who includes these in trips he would suggest that I can do.

I like stay in everything from hostel level to 5 star, I also enjoy camping, so the guide also needs to know the best options for all accommodation in each place in Jordan.
