    Besides and without

    What is the difference between 'besides' and 'without'?
    For example:

    1. There weren't any other customers in the restaurant besides us.
    2. Without us, there would not have been any customers in the restaurant.


    1. There weren't any other customers in the restaurant without us.
    2. Besides us, there would not have been any customers in the restaurant.

    Both are prepositions, correct?
    Can they be used interchangeably?
