Introduction: Older people are exposed to the risk of decline in mobility and social relations. While evidence indicates that recreational travel can have biopsychosocial benefits for older adults and improve their quality of life. The aim of the current study is to investigate the feasibility of one day tours for Tehranian older adults.
Method: This study has utilized the cost-benefit analysis method, developed and introduced by Dupuit. First, the demographic, geographic and economical capacities related to tourism in Tehran were searched, identified and reported, then the expenses and income of one unit of the tours were calculated. Finally, the profit of project's implementation was analyzed.
Results: With a population of over one million older adults and access to a significant number of cultural, historical, and recreational sites, Tehran is considered as a suitable place for senior tourism. The minimum profit margin for the implementation of one-day tours for older adults is estimated at 31%.
Conclusion: The implementation of one-day tours for Tehranian older adults can improve their quality of life and be profitable for investors. It is suggested that the state sector supports these activities by subsidiary payments.
