Both are good. No, both are *very* good. But they are rather different.
In my experience, AutoPano does a great job with content that can be
processed relatively hands-off. My personal finding was that if you
need to go into it to do tweaking and optimising to improve the
results it gets suddenly much more difficult. I had particular
trouble with my shaved 10.5mm lens and a full-frame sensor, but some
other tests worked more smoothly.
PTGui on the other hand starts with the assumption that you are happy
to take charge of things yourself, at least a little. It can take
more work to get things working 'just so', but it is designed to give
you access to the controls you need to achieve that. And once you've
done this you can save presets to speed things up for future stitches.
I prefer PTGui because it seems designed to let me tinker, experiment
and improve my output. But that's me.
