The price sounds about right. Here were I live the cost is $1200 - $1500.
And if the vehicle is an over head cam and the water pump is run by the timing belt. Most places will replace the water pump and timing components also. It is just a good practice. Since it has to be torn down that far anyway. I won't do a head gasket on over head cam engines unless I change all the other parts listed. But, I would ask the person if they plan on replacing those parts and if that is included in the quote you were given.
