Hi Fiaz88 and welcome to MySwissAlps!

There is the 8 day Swiss Travel Pass that would work quite well for you. You can order the Swiss Family Card (free) at the same time which will covers your children for all trips.

This pass covers all your trips (adults) except some mountain tops (you must pay a portion of the ticket price, explained here: Jungfraujoch and Mt. Titlis). Be sure to read through the where it is valid page here to see all routes and major attractions that are covered (or just partially covered). The children travel free on the Swiss Family Card always (even if the adults need to pay a portion of the ticket to a mountain).

You can buy the Swiss Travel Pass online actually - here. This way you can have it emailed to you and printed at home so there is no need to go to the rail office at the airport and stand in line to buy it. Just hop on your train to Luzern straight away!

You can use the Swiss railways timetable to find out how to get to the Rheinfall. You can go to either Neuhausen Rheinfall or Schloss Laufen Am Rheinfall

Let me know if you have further questions!
