Can't seem to find a tour at this port for the 1st of September, 2020. Are there usually plenty of taxis at the port.

This may sound odd, but contact Dubrovnik Driving Guide. Julija Antunovic is an amazing driver and guide (read her reviews), you will never regret booking her if you can, and if I'm not mistaken she actually is from Montenegro. Who would think to look under Dubrovnik! Good luck.

You can contact agencies in Dubrovnik and that recommendation is very good but if you want tour by locals, I suggest to check small family agencies like Mont Travelers, Montenegro Lifestyle or Visit-Kotor, etc.  My best experience was with www.monttravelers.com Anyway, I am happy to see someone is really optimistic about cruising 😇

We were in Kotor a couple of years ago.

There were quite a few tour operators at the pier, several different small buses and some taxis.

You first need to decide if you even want a vehicle.  If your goal is to simply see (and experience) Kotor, the town is located only a few yards from the pier (whether you dock or are tendered).  The city is Kotor can only be explored on foot.  If you want to explore some of the region beyond Kotor then you will find plenty of taxis and there are even some regional buses.  On our last visit (our 4th to Kotor) we actually rented a car and drove the region for many hours.  But for first time visitors I strongly recommend spending some or all of your time in the walled city of Kotor.  You do not need a guide or tour to see Kotor unless that is something you prefer.  Kotor has some nice walls (you can walk to the top), plenty of cafes/restaurants and many small shops.   It is a picturesque area and a terrific port.  You also want to be on deck for 2-3 hours as you to and from Kotor as the scenery is a real highlight.

First of all, you will love Kotor. It was the most beautiful sail into port I have ever seen (first pic below). We booked a wonderful tour with Montenegro Tours. I had read about it through another review here on Cruise Critic. I ended up getting another couple, now friends, from our roll call to join us and it was a wonderful day with just the 4 of us and our guide, George. He took us all over the area on a nice scenic drive after seeing some sites near the port (over to Budva for lunch).  If you want more time in the city walls though, do let him know that as we only had approximately 20 minutes at the end of our tour and I really would have loved more time to shop and explore. But you can let him know ahead of time and I'm sure he can cater to your needs. Here are some pictures from our excursion that day and his link. https://www.mtours.me/
