Question head gasket leaking

My head gasket seems to be leaking oil from the front area near the water pump which was replaced last year. The front does not look very oily, the stains look more like the black sealant used to seal the joint between the water pump and the block. The plastic drip tray below the engine seems to have a thin layer of oil with dust and grit soaked in. My indept. technician says that it would cost me A$1200 for the gasket job. The valves job together with the gasket would cost A$1800. Does this sound alright? Do I also have to change the timing chain and guides while doing this work? The car has gone 193000kms.
