I used International Traders in Amman several years ago. I tried to find them on the internet in the last few months and couldn't, so I don't know whether they are still in existence.

The guide picked us up from the ferry in Aqaba (we were coming from diving in Sharm) in a Mercedes. Got our visas for us in record time. There are loads of great hotels in and near Petra.

Jordan is in a deep financial crisis. Tourism is way down and they have been flooded with refuges from Iraq. When you encounter bedouins at Petra, please buy from them whether you need or want the souvenirs. Jordan has been a great friend of the west and needs our help.
