Driver for full day

We are looking for a driver from Petra who understands enough English that we can stop along the route to Amman. We have a full day before our plane departs in the evening and want to stop en-route and probably make changes in our itinerary along the route. Travel agents provide guides but we really don't need a guide, just a driver. Any suggestions?

Thanks

When my partner and I travelled from the Dead Sea to Petra we used a local taxi driver who had already taken us on day trips from and around Madaba as well as transferring us to the Dead Sea.

On the way we stopped at Kerak Castle and had lunch in the town.

On one of our day trips he detoured to his house on the way back so as to offer us tea! On another, he pulled over so that he could buy us a selection of figs for the journey. (For any sceptics out there, he did not have any hidden agenda, he was simply being welcoming and never gave the impression that it was in aid of receiving a tip).

This was both economical and convenient, with the additional bonus of interacting with a local and getting a feel for the culture.

Therefore, I would advise using a local taxi for your trip. Ask for recommendations from your hotel.
