A driver might actually know the places of interest and roads to the different places but might actually not be very well versed with the destination attracts in a way that a tour guide would know. Sometimes the two can actually work together in the event that the tour guide does not have experience in driving or if you are hiring a coaster bus which comes with a driver and the tour guide would be there to offer information regarding the different destinations visited.
